APPLE VALLEY: Missing Child Community Search

Residents from Apple Valley and other high desert communities gathered Saturday afternoon to pray for and search for missing Duke Flores. The six year old boy was reported missing Thursday night. The news that his mother and aunt have been arrested on murder charges did not deter the community from gathering. One resident described her motivation saying that if it was one of her family members that was missing then she would be searching 24 hours a day until he was found. A time of prayer was offered before the searchers left the boy’s home to search in the nearby desert.
