Have you seen this missing ETX toddler?

Good afternoon, everyone; hope your Tuesday is going well!

Here's some of what we're working on for you in the KLTV newsroom this afternoon:

Crews are on the ground searching a densely-wooded area in East Texas for a boy who went missing Tuesday afternoon playing a game of hide and seek. An official with the Smith County Sheriff's Office says three kids were playing hide and seek in a densely-wooded area near FM 16 and CR 373 near Winona, when one child, a two-year-old boy named Jake Kimbley, went missing. Please keep your eyes open for this child. More on that at 5.

 

Also, we know now the identities of the children killed in yesterday's horrific wreck in Van Zandt County. We also know that the children were unrestrained in the vehicle. This picture above shows three of the deceased children, 2-year-old Judith Jaimes, 13-year-old Roszaleia Jaimes, and 6-year-old Omar James. We'll update with the latest on this accident at 5.

ETX health officials came together to discuss the cause, the prevention and the staggering numbers that prove West Nile Disease continues to spread. With 28 confirmed West Nile cases in just the ETX region, the health district is taking steps in providing private and public areas with ground spraying to control the number of mosquitos.  Annette Falconer shows us at 6 the latest information health officials are providing.

 

Some East Texas drivers are saying they can't drive their cars, thanks to a construction mess on Tyler's West Loop 323 last week. KLTV's Shaley Sanders met with drivers today who say right now, their vehicles are still undriveable, with tires caked with thick black tar. That's coming up at 6.

We'll continue to keep you posted on the missing two-year old, as we have a reporter on the scene. Stay with KLTV and KLTV.com for updates.

We'll see you soon,
