Sheriffs in Texas are appealing for help in locating a three-year-old boy who vanished after running into the woods, chasing the neighbor’s dog.

Christopher Ramirez was playing outside his home in Plantersville, northeast of Houston, on Wednesday afternoon.

Christopher Ramirez, aged three, was last seen running into woods near his home in Texas on Wednesday afternoon, chasing a neighbor’s dog. The dog returned but the child is still missing

He was seen at 1:30pm running after the dog, and his mother, Araceli Nunez, who was unpacking the car after a shopping trip, ran after him but was unable to find her son.

The dog returned at 8:30pm on Wednesday, but Christopher is still missing. 

A massive hunt has been launched for the child, with drones and sniffer dogs, but there has been no trace of him. 

Nunez said she believes he has been abducted, and tearfully told a press conference: ‘Please help me.’

She added: ‘I feel as though someone took him and is hiding him. 

‘I don’t have any enemies.’

Sheriffs have drained one pond and searched other water spots, but have found no sign of Christopher.

They said the hunt is still being considered a rescue mission, not a recovery.

‘We’re now re-going back to square one to think about if we missed anything,’ said Donald Sowell, Grimes County sheriff, on Thursday afternoon. 

‘We canvased the neighborhood yesterday. Three times. Four times. 

‘Everything is fitting into place but we have not found the boy.’ 

Araceli Nunez begged on Thursday for help to find her missing son, and said she believes he was snatched from the woods

Two registered sex offenders live nearby but their homes have been checked, according to Sowell. 

All neighbors have cooperated with the investigation and home cameras have been checked as well. 

Ramirez was wearing a bright green shirt, unknown color shorts, and red Mickey Mouse shoes. 

He is described as being about three feet tall, with brown eyes and hair, and weighing about 40-45 pounds. 

‘We’re here until we find him,’ said Sowell.
