TWO RIVERS, Wis. (AP) — The mother of a 3-year-old Wisconsin boy who vanished nearly a week ago and a man her son was staying with have been formally charged with child neglect in connection with the boy’s disappearance. Elijah Vue was last seen on Feb. 20 at a residence in Two Rivers, where prosecutors say his mother had sent him to stay with the man. Searches by police and residents have so far not located Elijah. His mother, 31-year-old Katrina Baur of Wisconsin Dells was formally charged Monday in Manitowoc County with one felony count of party-to-a-crime child neglect and two misdemeanor counts of resisting or obstructing an officer. The man Elijah had been staying with, 39-year-old Jesse Vang of Two Rivers, was formally charged with one felony count of party-to-a-crime child neglect.
