COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) --  It's been days since 11-year-old Gannon Stauch was reportedly last seen in his home near Fountain, and now police and law enforcement are investigating his disappearance as a missing and endangered child case.

The search now intensifying as winter weather approaches southern Colorado, with temperatures expected to get to the single-digit lows and negative wind chills Monday and Tuesday.

Temperatures that low are cold for anyone, but especially for an 11-year-old who may have left his home unprepared.

Hundreds of volunteers, drones and more than a dozen county, state and federal agencies are part of the desperate days-long search for Gannon.

The 11-year-old's mother, Landen Hiott, spoke in a press conference Thursday.

"Gannon. Bubba. Little man. Mommy's hero. Wherever you're at, mommy and daddy are here," she said. "We're begging and pleading for you to come home."

But as snow and frigid temperatures make their way into the area, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office is venturing into the rural terrain, an effort they say will not stop despite the conditions.

  1. This has been interesting to watch unfold. Lorson Ranch is not on the way to anywhere, it is a pretty closed in community so it is hard to think that someone passing through just nabbed him. Seems pretty far fetched that he would just run away somewhere also. They are doing a lot to search for him so I pray that they find him soon. Alive.

  2. Supposedly the neighbor has video of the step-mother and Gannon leaving the house together and step-mother returning alone. Not good news for either of them.

    1. There is a lot that does not seem right. Kinda like when Kelsey Barreth(sp?) was first reported missing and that she “took off”. Ole Patrick was having thanksgiving dinner with family shortly after killing and burning her.
      Nothing surprises me anymore. I just hope this one isn’t horrific like that was.
