Police are searching for a suspect they say is responsible for the murder of a 2-year-old boy earlier this week.

27-year-old Amond Rainey was charged with murder Friday for the death of Josiya Eaves, who died Wednesday at the intensive care unit of Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

Authorities have not commented on the circumstances surrounding Eaves' murder, but court documents state Rainey purposely caused the toddler's death by use of blunt force. The relationship between the suspect and victim has not been released.

Rainey resides in Millvale and is at large, according to Cincinnati Police. They ask anyone with information on his whereabouts to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
