Police are urgently searching for a two-year-old boy whose mother's body was found in "a very violent homicide scene" at their Florida home.
Police Chief Anthony Holloway said state, federal, and county authorities have gotten involved in the search for the boy.
"It's very urgent, it's all hands on deck right now," Holloway said, adding "we want to bring this child home."
The crime scene where Jeffrey was found was "very violent on the inside," police said, noting that they have serious concerns for the child's safety.
Holloway said law enforcement officials "know he is not with his father."
"If you have this child, please call us, let us know this child is safe," he urged.
