    Police Believe Missing 2-Year-Old With Father
    Two-year-old Pele Watkins III is missing and authorities believe the boy is with his father, 39-year-old Pele Watkins.

    Authorities in Pennsylania and Nevada are working together to locate a missing 2-year-old boy, who they say is with his father.

    Pele Watkins III was reported missing by the Las Vegas Police Department June 30. The child lives in the Nevada city with his mother, but his father, 39-year-old Pele Watkins, is a Philadelphia resident, according to authorities.

    The city's Department of Human Services learned that the child may have been staying at a home on the 2200 block of West Huntingdon Street in North Philly. 

    DHS officials went to the residence on Aug. 20, but the child and his father were no longer there, according to police.

    Officials say the pair may be traveling in a 2003 silver Mercedes SL500 with a Nevada vanity plate reading PEMP.

    Anyone with information on the pair's whereabouts is urged to contact police at 215-686-3093.
