A New York mother whose 9-month-old child went missing two weeks ago pleaded for someone to come forth with information, according to CNN.

"I would like to ask anybody that's out there if you know where (Levon Wameling) is, or if he's alive or dead, just please call the Utica police so I can put him to rest," Amy Warney said at a news conference.

The child was wearing only a diaper when he went missing May 29.

It took the baby's father two weeks to call police to report Levon's disappearance, authorities said, who are investigating why it took him so long. The dad did not give officials a reasonable explanation.

"Based on the information that he's given us, we have a lot of concern," Utica Police Chief Mark Williams told CNN, without elaborating on the reason the father gave them. "We have a problem with what he says. There's no question about it."

The father told investigators he took the child out for a late-night walk and accidentally locked himself out of the house. He put the child down on the small front porch of the home and went around back to find a way in.

When he opened the front door, he said, the baby was gone.

Guy Palmieri, the father's landlord at the East Utica house, told CNN his tenant frequently lost keys to the house and called him for new ones.

The father hasn't spoken with police since Tuesday, Williams said.

"The last we left it with the father he asked for an attorney and no longer wanted to speak with us," he said.

Officials are on day three of the extensive search, bringing helicopters in to scour the area, according to local station WKTV.

Sgt. Steve Hauck said his department was getting a lot of leads and encouraged residents to give their yards a thorough check, according to CNN.

Police haven't called the father a suspect and no charges have been filed.

Levon has black hair, brown eyes and is 2 feet tall, according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's website.
