Search for missing Hampton 2-year-old enters day five


HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — The search for 2-year-old Noah Tomlin continues in Hampton.

The circumstances surrounding the child’s disappearance have remained unclear. Tomlin was last seen at his home around 1 a.m. Monday, and police received a report that he was missing around 11:30 a.m.

Hampton Police told WAVY News 10 they were going to hold a news conference Friday evening to discuss the latest developments around 4 p.m., but postponed it to 11 p.m.

Authorities returned to a landfill in Hampton Friday to continue the search for Tomlin. Police say they are not suspending the search because they are hopeful the child is still alive.

The landfill where authorities have focused the search is located roughly 10 miles from Tomlin’s home.

Police expanded the search for Tomlin beyond Buckroe Beach earlier this week after they said all reasonable efforts to find him in the area were exhausted.

The boy’s mother, Julia Tomlin, told 10 On Your Side Thursday evening the 2-year-old “can’t walk well, he is possibly autistic, he loves everybody and is very affectionate.”

Anyone who sees Tomlin, has any information or knows of his whereabouts is asked to call the Hampton Police Division or the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
