Ark National Guard Joins Child Search

CHIDESTER, Ark. (AP) - The search for a missing 3-year-old boy in Ouachita County is continuing, with 60 Arkansas National Guard soldiers joining the effort. Dominique Arceneaux vanished Tuesday afternoon while playing outside his home near White Oak Lake in the Chidester area.

The sheriff's office says the boy still has not turned up. The search area has included the lake, nearby paths, roads and woods, and law officers have questioned registered sex offenders in the region. Sheriff David Norwood said there is no indication of what may have happened to the boy.

About 25 people have been questioned. Today, 60 Arkansas National Guard soldiers helped to expand the search. The sheriff's office said aircraft were also expected to be used today. --- Information from: El Dorado News-Times,
