Timmons says several dozen officers from the FBI, State Law Enforcement Division, Richland County Sheriff's Department, Columbia Police Department and the Columbia-Richland Fire Department are conducting the search.

The boy's mother, 22-year-old Zinah Jennings, has been held in jail since late December. Columbia Police accused her of lying about the boy's whereabouts.
