A HUGE search is underway for a missing six-year-old boy who disappeared in Panama City Beach.
Enrique Cortez was last seen behind the Shores of Panama condominium on Monday afternoon.
He is described as three feet tall and weighing around 50 pounds. The little boy was last seen in a turquoise shirt and light blue shorts.
Approximately 80 first responders are now on the case searching for Cortez.
There are currently no suspects in the investigation.
“Our hearts are with the family,” PCB Police Chief Eusebio "J.R." Talamantez said during an update on the search on Monday.
“This is just a traumatic experience … I just want to say we’re going to do everything we can. Our primary job is to save lives and that’s what we’re hoping to do.”
Police have asked the public to be on the lookout, but are not yet planning to organize a civilian search party.
“We do these types of search parties very methodically … by bringing outside help in, it sort of slows us down at this particular moment,” Talamantez said. “We’re not ruling it out altogether.”
Anyone with information about his location is asked to call the Panama City Beach Police Department at (850) 233-5000.
