FRUITLAND, Idaho (AP) — Police investigators in southwestern Idaho now say a 5-year-old boy missing since July was likely abducted. Fruitland Police Chief J.D. Huff said during a news conference Thursday that the search for Michael Vaughan won’t stop until the boy is found. Huff said no headway has been made despite exhaustive ground searches in a 2-mile radius of the family home over the past few months. Michael was last seen outside near his Fruitland home on July 27 wearing a light blue Minecraft T-shirt, dark blue boxer briefs and flip flops. Authorities are asking anyone with information to call Fruitland Police dispatch at 208-642-6006 or to email
