Lowndes County - Day two of the search for a baby boy missing from Jacksonville has passed, and still no sign of his body.

About 65 people are looking for the body of 10 month old Jayquan Mosely in the Onyx Landfill. He and his mother, Lynda Wilkes, disappeared almost two weeks ago. She was found dead near Gainesville Friday.

Investigators think the baby was put in some trash that was taken to the landfill last weekend. Search teams have covered about half of the one acre area where they believe the body may be. "You have to take the trash and spread it out on even ground in real thin layers, then we walk it shoulder to shoulder with rakes and its a very time-consuming process," said Sheriff Ashley Paulk. "We're estimating if we go through all of it, it could be a five to six day process."

Jacksonville police have named the baby's father, John Mosely Junior, as a person of interest in the case. Wilkes was supposed to meet Mosely in a store parking lot the day she and her son went missing to discuss child support payments.

Search crews will resume their efforts at 8:30 Wednesday morning.
