Toddlers missing out of Mississippi found; investigators cancel Amber Alert


Dior Wade and Zarie Wade

COPIAH COUNTY, Miss. — Two toddlers have been found after the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation launched an Amber Alert to track them down.

“Both children have been located and are safe,” MBI said in a Facebook post at about noon Thursday.

MBI had previously reported 3-year-old Dior Wade and 1-year-old Zarie Wade disappeared.

The two children were last seen at about 4:39 p.m. Wednesday and may have been heading towards Hinds County with Teanna L. Dixon and Derek Young.

MBI provided no words on whether or not the two adults also mentioned in the Ambert Alert have been contacted.

Investigators describe Dixon as a 28-year-old black woman standing 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds. She has brown eyes and black hair.

Young is described as a 29-year-old black man standing 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing about 148 pounds. He has brown eyes and an unknown hair color.

They may be in a silver 2016 Lincoln MKZ with Georgia plates reading, “RTI 3239.”

The car was possibly last seen headed north towards Hinds County.
