Levon Wameling (9 months) has gone missing from his home in Utica, NY. He was last seen by his father Jevon Wameling (27), who waited TWO WEEKS to tell his parents that his baby boy had gone missing!
According to Utica police, they were informed of Levon’s disappearance on June 11 from an attorney of the relatives, even though Mr. Wameling last saw his son in May. The family’s lawyer told police that Jevon had left Levon on the porch of their house, while he went around the back to unlock the back door after locking himself out. When he returned to get the baby, he had mysteriously disappeared…
Jevon had custody of Levon after his baby mama Amy Warney was in rehab. As I stated above, Jevon didn’t tell the police of Levon’s disappearance. But he did tell his parents, Levon’s grandparents, who then told their attorney, who then told police. So it was sort of like a game of Chinese Whispers, but instead of a tongue twister or a limerick, it was the safety and wellbeing of a child being passed around the circle. And Jevon only came forward about it to Amy, when she asked where Levon was.
Amy Warney is obviously distraught over the disappearance of her baby Levon. She’s pleading with any witnesses to come forward and speak with police. She was trying to do the right thing, going to rehab to get herself off the booze or the drugs so she could give her son a better life. She trusted Levon’s father to look after their baby boy.
Jevon is now named as a “person of interest”. Given that he was the last person to see Levon and that he did not come forward about his son’s disappearance, he knows more about what happened to Levon than what he’s letting on. I don’t know much about babies, but I’ve done a quick Google and it would be very unusual for a 9 month old to be up and walking. So Levon didn’t disappear on his own. Someone most likely took him, but then Jevon would have reported it immediately and directly to police if that were the case. Police are very suspicious of Jevon’s actions following the disappearance of his baby. He has a criminal record – he was charged in May 2010 with resisting arrest, escaping police custody and harassment after he was arrested for possessing brass knuckles. In 2009 he was busted with pot. Neighbours say that the police are regularly called to the home because of screaming. Jevon didn’t bother to look for his son after he realised he was missing.
Police searched for Levon using sniffer dogs and helicopters, but bad weather has hampered search efforts. Levon is 9 months old, has brown eyes, black hair and is bi-racial, according to his Missing Person poster. Anyone with information should call Utica police on 315-223-3501, 315-223-3503, or 315-223-3510.
