The search continues in Ionia County for a missing 10 year old boy.

Devon Morrison was last seen Saturday afternoon with his fishing pole near his home in Belding.

His shoes were found in the river around 2:30 Sunday morning.

The FBI and police are considering his disappearance suspicious, and treating it as a possible crime.

A dive team searched the river in Kent County Sunday, and police have gone door to door looking for answers.
