BUCKEYE, AZ - The search for a missing 10-year-old continued for its fourth day Thursday. Police used drones to get a bird's eye view, helping to make sure nothing was missed by those searching on the ground.
Jesse Wilson was reported missing by his mother on July 18th at 1:41 am.
"He's done this before," Crystal Wilson told dispatchers.
She sounded cool, calm and collected while on the phone, repeatedly telling dispatch that he has run away before.
"My son has either gone out the window, which he has done before. Or gone out the back door," said Wilson.
For some reason, Wilson reached out to police by calling the Buckeye Police Department's general number.
"Why didn't she call 911? That's the first thing a parent would do is call 911," said Sharlotte Cooper, who volunteered to search for Jesse.
Cooper has been involved with the search to bring Jesse home, but she has her doubts about the circumstances of his disappearance.
"I question the whole story. And I would be out and searching for the kids," said Cooper.
Jesse's mom waited four days before agreeing to do an interview.
