Jesse Wilson update: Community, school 'Light up the Night' for missing Buckeye 10-year-old

BUCKEYE, AZ - It’s been nearly two weeks since Jesse Wilson was last seen at his home in Buckeye. Since then, police, the FBI and hundreds of volunteers have been searching for the missing 10-year-old.

Saturday, his school took a unique approach to raising awareness. A convoy of brightly-decorated cars and school buses took to Yuma Road in Buckeye and drove the ten miles to his school in Goodyear.

"This child and this family deserves to know something. The community that's out here looking, we want to know, you know where is he? It's time for this baby to come home,” said Alicia Lee, whose daughter went to school with Jesse.

Many of the cars had the hashtag #LeadJesseHome written on them in yellow paint. The convoy drove together, hoping to let everyone know they’re still looking for Jesse.

“I just can't imagine and I go to bed thinking about him. Our family is praying for him and we're so worried that he's just out there lost somewhere,” said volunteer Carolyn Clay.

At the end of the drive a spotlight awaited volunteers in the school’s parking lot. It joins a desk painted in yellow with Jesse’s name on it. The school has been active in the search for Jesse and acting as a liaison for Jesse’s family.

Buckeye police have set up a tip line in the search for Jesse Wilson. If you think you have any information call the hotline: 623-349-6411.
