The mother of a missing Buckeye 10-year-old pleaded on Thursday for the boy to return home.

Watch our full interview with Jesse Wilson's mother in the player above.

Volunteers and police have been searching unsuccessfully for Wilson since he left his West Valley home last weekend.

Police suspended the search for Wilson late Thursday morning because of the heat, but say the search efforts will continue.

They say the boy slipped out his bedroom window Sunday night.

He reportedly has left home before, but hasn't stayed out for an extended period.

After his mother reported him missing, police searched for the boy on ground and from the air.

They say the boy is 4 feet tall, weighs 60 pounds and he was last seen wearing a red shirt, shorts, black socks and black shoes.

Police also say he has no known medical conditions.
