The Canyon County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding 18-month-old Mason Cunningham, who went missing from his home on the 6800 block of Ustick Road, near 11th Ave. North. Extension, around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.

“Mason is described as approximately 2-feet 5-inches tall with blonde hair and green eyes. He was last seen wearing a light-colored tank top and blue pinstriped shorts,” said Canyon County spokesman Joe Decker. 

“He had been in the yard with a family member who had gone around the house to change irrigation.  A few minutes later, Mason could not be found,” he added. 

The Canyon County Sheriff’s Office is being supported by multiple first-responding agencies and volunteers.

The Meridian Police Department’s tracking dog was called in Tuesday night, but the search yielded no results, Decker said.

Emergency crews are focusing the search on Ten Mile Creek, which runs near the Cunningham family home.
