50,000 Fliers Distributed For Missing 6-year-old

Over 50,000 fliers have been distributed in the hopes of finding a missing 6-year-old Florida boy.

The U.S. Postal Service and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children gave out the fliers Saturday with information about Adji Desir.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office said the boy disappeared from a migrant farm worker village in Immokalee in southwest Florida Jan. 10. A group of 250 deputies searched a three-quarter mile radius of Adji's home on Saturday.

Lt. Tom Smith said officials would also look at sex offenders in the area.

Authorities say the boy is developmentally disabled and has the mental capacity of a 2-year-old. The FBI has assigned special agents to help.

Immokalee is southeast of Fort Myers.
