HAMPTON — As of Tuesday morning, the 2-year-old boy reported missing early Monday has still not been found, authorities said.

Noah Tomlin was last seen by his mother on Monday at approximately 1 a.m. at the 100 block of Atlantic Avenue, according to the Hampton Police Department.

“We didn’t receive the call until 11:35 a.m.” said Cpl. Ashley Jenrette, spokeswoman for the department.

Jenrette said police didn’t notify the public immediately because they were waiting on a picture of Tomlin.

Reggie Williams, spokesman for the police department, said there are multiple law enforcement agencies involved including the Virginia State Police, the FBI, a marine team from the Port of Virginia, the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, and the Poquoson Police Department.

“We’re going to continue to check and recheck,” Williams said. “At this point we’re not seeking any assistance from citizens.”

When asked to elaborate, Williams noted the department is very familiar with the area and has drone surveillance, and by using search teams they are able to track and document which areas have been searched.

“We’re not ruling anything out at this time,” Williams said. “We’re taking every possible option into consideration.”

Williams added foul play is considered a possibility at this time and the department is not ruling anything out.

Tomlin was last seen wearing a white and green pajama shirt and a diaper. If anyone has any information, call HPD at 757-727-6111 or 888-LOCK-U-UP to remain anonymous.
