Back in January a 9-year-old boy named Jace from Hillsdale County went missing but was found two days later. That very same boy is missing again.

Jace has been missing since Saturday night. He's 4’2” tall and approximately 55 pounds. He has light brown hair, brown eyes and a small scar on the left side of his head with missing hair.

According to WNEM, Child Protective Services filed a petition to remove the boy from his adoptive mother’s custody after allegations of abuse and neglect. Apparently, the boy told investigators that his mother would leave him home alone for hours and sometimes even overnight.

It's really heartbreaking that this boy was taken in by this women, only to be treated like garbage along the way. The system is failing this poor kid.

If you have any information on Jace's whereabouts or happen to see him, call the Michigan State Police Jackson Post at 517-780-4580 or the Hillsdale County Sheriff’s Dept. at 517-437-7317.
