Kingston Frazier's mother left him in a auto with its motor running in the parking lot of a Jackson supermarket while she shopped Thursday morning. The vehicle was eventually found (20 kilometres) 14 miles to the north, just off Interstate 55, which also runs in front of the supermarket.

"Just drop him off at the store", Jackson Police Chief Lee Vance said, according to the paper.

According to the Hinds County Sheriff's office, his mom, Ebony Archie, arrived at Kroger in her Toyota Camry and ran inside the store for a few minutes.

UPDATE: 05/18/2017 10:12am The Amber Alert for Kingston Frazier has been canceled. Authorities say Dwan Wakefield, D'Allen Washington, and Byron McBride, all in their late teens, were taken into custody Thursday and are being held without bond. All three are from the Jackson area. They could have left that child in that backseat, asleep. For now, they are jailed without bail in Madison County, just north of Jackson. While DeAllen Washington, 18, surrendered himself, authorities said.

Guest says the three men will make their first appearance in court Monday.

Authorities confirm that 6-year-old Kingston Frazier was found dead in Madison County.

"This is a 6-year-old that's gone", Kingston's cousin, Kolby Irby, told reporters at the crime scene as the boy's anguished family wept nearby.

Kingston was last seen about 1:15 a.m CST, Thursday morning in the parking lot of a Kroger grocery store in Jackson, Miss.

Authorities publicly disclosed the boy's death while surrounded by grieving family members. Guest said the other two did not yet have lawyers.

Wakefield was a quarterback previous year at a high school in Madison County, north of Jackson, county Superintendent Ronnie McGehee told The Clarion-Ledger.

Madison County Schools Superintendent Ronnie McGehee said this is a tragic situation on all parts and they are praying for everyone involved. A man got out of the passenger seat of a 2-door sedan, got into the driver's side of the Camry, and drove off with little Kingston still inside the vehicle.

It is unclear how long it took Archie to tell law enforcement that her son was in the vehicle or how long after that the Amber Alert was issued.
