CHICAGO (CBS) — Two months after their disabled 21-year-old daughter and 2-year-old grandson went missing, her parents have asked anyone who will listen for help in finding the pair.
Diamond Bynum and her nephew, King Walker, vanished on July 25, after going for a walk near their home in Gary, Indiana.
Bynum’s father, Eugene Bynum Jr., said it’s been a difficult two months. He believes his daughter and his grandson are still alive.
“If they weren’t alive, we would have came across some bodies; not just necessarily us, and our search team, or my family, but people who actually live in Gary,” he said. “In my heart, I do believe they’re alive.”
He and a handful of others have searched for his daughter and grandson every day, often searching abandoned buildings.
“There’s over 15,000 abandoned buildings in Gary. There’s just a handful of us,” he said.
