Jackson police Commander Tyree Jones tells WLBT-TV that a body found inside the stolen vehicle Thursday is believed to be that of 6-year-old Kingston Frazier.

That alert was canceled several hours later when authorities discovered the stolen auto abandoned in Gluckstadt in Madison County.

The Hinds County Sheriff's Department has taken a second person of interest in custody in connection with the death of a 6-year-old boy.

Frazier had gone missing after 1 a.m. Thursday when a man took the vehicle from the parking lot of a Kroger supermarket in Jackson.

Reportedly, the little boy's mother, Ebony Archie, had left him inside her running Toyota Camry at about 2:00 a.m. while she ran inside the local Kroger to pick up a few items.

An Amber Alert was issued for the missing boy and was canceled several hours later after police had said he was found dead in Madison County. "That baby hadn't done anything to him", she said.

The Sheriff's Office says 18-year-old Dwan Diondro Wakefield was taken into custody on Holmes Avenue in Jackson.

Three suspects have been arrested after Kingston Frazier was allegedly kidnapped and killed in Gluckstadt, around 20 miles north of Jackson, Mississippi, on Thursday (18 May).

A two-door Honda pulled up to the vehicle and the passenger got out then got into Archie's auto with the child inside, surveillance video showed.

Authorities confirm that 6-year-old Kingston Frazier was found dead in Madison County. They didn't have to kill him. The boy was last seen wearing a white tank top with khaki shorts and black and gold Jordan shoes.

An unoccupied Honda Civic was also recovered by police. "Leave him somewhere, find a way to get him to a store, to a gas station, to a restaurant, Wal-Mart, anywhere people are and just drop him off".
