Few reminders remain 5 months after Buckeye boy’s disappearance

Drive around the city of Buckeye and you see signs of the holidays almost everywhere.
Homes are decorated, store windows plastered with lights and decorations. Even cars are adorned with holiday ornaments.

Four months ago, though, those decorations and lights were flyers.
It seemed everywhere you went in Buckeye, you saw a “missing” poster about 10-year-old Jesse Wilson.

“I don’t see many flyers up,” said Fernando Navarro.

As days turned to weeks and weeks to months, flyers were taken down. Yellow ribbons that covered the city are now faded and frayed.

“It’s unfortunate and heartbreaking,” said Brenda Valenzuela. “I can’t imagine a world without my kids.”

Outside Jesse’s school at the Bradley Academy some yellow ribbons tied to a fence remain but many have blown away.
At the main entrance, a giant yellow wreath hangs on a pillar outside but flyers that were once on the door and inside are now gone.

The Buckeye Police Department continues to work the case and follow up on leads but is still waiting for forensic evidence sent to the DPS Crime Lab.
