Milwaukee police are searching for a missing 3-year-old boy after his mother was killed and the man who was a person of interest in her slaying was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Major Harris has been missing since early Thursday, when authorities say a person found his mother, 25-year-old Mallery Muenzenberger, of Onalaska, dead in the backyard of a Milwaukee home.
Police say Major may have been with 20-year-old Jaheem Clark, of Milwaukee. Clark was considered a person of interest in Muenzenberger’s death.
Authorities said Monday afternoon the suspect's vehicle was found near a laundromat, adding police "will be actively canvassing the area" out of an abundance of caution.

Major was last seeing wearing a dark blue t-shirt with a small pocket on left side and navy blue Nike basketball shorts, police said. He is barefoot and has delayed speech, according to police. He also has a small abrasion on right cheek.
