Top Stories

UPDATE (11:05 A.M.) – Cherokee County Sheriff Brent Dickson is urging the public to come forward with information regarding the disappearance of Armaidre Argumon.

In a press conference on Monday, he had a message for the public: be vigilant.

If someone were to find something suspicious, he says to not touch it and report it immediately to police.

Armaidre’s father, Deandre, is currently charged with endangering/abandoning a child. Charges could be upgraded as the investigation progresses.

Police were notified last week after a family member called 911 saying the two were missing. Deandre did return to the home, where he was taken into custody.

Dickson said that Deandre has not been cooperative and that it has not yet been determined where he went.

So far, there is no evidence that any other family member is involved, according to Dixon. He also asked that if anyone is holding Armaidre to protect him from Deandre, or to even help Deandre, to come forward and return him.
