Father yearns for missing son's return

Posted: Updated:

The father of a missing Newburgh boy is still searching for answers almost two months after the boy's disappearance.

Marc Anthony Bookal went missing Dec. 14 while in the care of his mother's boyfriend. Cory Byrd has been charged with child endangerment, but police are not yet calling him a suspect in the boy's disappearance.

Yul Bookal, the boy's father, says he's trying to stay positive during an extremely trying time. Police and the 4-year-old's family are pleading with the public to come forward with any information that might lead them to the missing boy.
