This is not the first time that the young boy has disappeared.

Last November, Gyasi vanished after going trick-or-treating against his parents orders after failing to do his school work, said his stepfather, Geoffrey Nix:

“[He] didn’t turn in his project that was due on Friday. His mother found out on Monday, so he couldn’t go trick-or-treating.”

Gyasi’s mother left home with her 5-year-old daughter at approximately 6:00 p.m. and when Nix arrived home from work around 20 minutes later, the boy was gone, reported the AJC last year.

Nix said that neighbors told him that Gyasi, who is signed with the J. Pervis Talent Agency in Atlanta, was spotted walking around the neighborhood with a trick-or-treat bag, so the worried step-father searched for him until around 2:00 a.m. He decided to stop looking for the boy because the weather was inclement and they believed that he was hiding out at a friend’s house:

“We said, ‘it’s freezing cold, he can’t be out here,'” Nix said. “We believed he was at a buddy’s house; he knows he’s in trouble.”

After a seeing a news report on the missing boy the following morning, a woman flagged down a traffic officer, who then returned Gyasi to his home at around 8:00 a.m.

“That’s how we got him back,” Cobb police Det. John McGraw told the AJC. “[She] knew about the boy, and wasn’t sure who he was until the news came out this morning.”

Now young Gyasi is missing again. Anyone with information on the boy’s whereabouts is being asked to please call 911 or the Cobb County Police Department at 770-801-3470.
