Police are looking for a child who was reported missing in Nevada but is now believed to be in the Philadelphia area.

2-year-old Pele Watkins III was reported missing in June 2014 from Las Vegas. He is believed to be with his father, 38-year-old Pele Watkins.

The Department of Human Services learned of the child's whereabouts on the 2200 block of West Huntingdon Street.
