Search continues for missing two-year-old Carson Hollingsworth, family desperate for answers
EAST FELICIANA, La. (WAFB) - The U.S. Marshall Service has joined the search for a missing two-year-old from Slaughter.
According to East Feliciana Sheriff Jeff Travis, Carson Hollingsworth was taken by his father, Orin Hollingsworth Sunday Afternoon from their home on Maglone Lane in Slaughter, Louisiana.
Carson, who has blonde hair and blue eyes, was last seen wearing a white t-shirt with the words “chilling with my cousins” on it. His father, Orin, has brown hair, brown eyes, and a beard. He is 6′2 and 220 pounds. It is believed Orin is driving a white, 2003 Chevy Tahoe with Louisiana license plate 860-EIT.
According to the child’s mother, she has not had contact with Hollingsworth since Sunday afternoon. The family said Carson has a severe medical condition that requires daily medication and breathing treatments. According to the family, it is not believed the father has that medication.
“Carson and his family are in desperate need of your help,” said Jacob Parker, a family member to the young boy who spoke on behalf of the family Tuesday. “His immediate return is critical due to Carson needing his daily breathing treatments and his daily medical care. He requires special attention because of this medical condition.”
East Feliciana Sheriff Jeff Travis said the situation is becoming more dire by the hour due to the medical concerns.
“The medical issues of the child is the major issue right now,” Travis said. “As this case goes on and on each day, each hour, makes it more dangerous than it was an hour before.”
