An age-progressed photo of 6-year-old Adji Desir could one day help solve the mystery of the Immokalee boy, who went missing three years ago Tuesday.

That's the hope of Collier County Sheriff's Office investigators, who issued the photo generated by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children depicting how Adji Desir may appear as a 9-year-old.

A search began for the child after he went missing while playing outside his grandmother's house in Farm Worker Village in Immokalee on Jan. 10, 2009. There's been no sign of him since. Adji would have turned 9 in October.

More than 1,300 people from law enforcement and other agencies around Florida — including 700 CCSO deputies — joined in an intensive weeklong air, ground and water search for the boy, who is developmentally disabled. Searchers combed the Immokalee area on horseback and all-terrain vehicles, in helicopters, with K-9, as well as in patrol cars, boats and on foot.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff's Office at 252-9300, or if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780- TIPS (8477).


Adji Desir has been missing from Immokalee since Saturday evening, Jan. 10, 2009.
