HAMPTON, Va - Saturday marks day 6 of volunteers searching for little Codi, after he was reported missing by his father Cory Bigsby on Monday, January 31.

"I hope they find little Codi," 10-year old Amiah said.

Amiah and her family have been out searching throughout the day. They are one of many volunteers out searching through the woods and passing out flyers with Codi’s pictures.

"I’m out here to find a young man missing that needs to be found. How does that young boy feel right now? It’s cold. He probably doesn’t know what’s going on. We don’t know what’s going on either," Roger Lee, a volunteer searching for Codi said.

Most volunteers searching in the woods were parents, with missing 4-year-old Codi Bigsby hitting home for many.

"I have 2 daughters. We just want to find him and help him," Lee said.

Earlier Saturday, community members came together to decorate a tree near Buckroe Beach to put candles and flowers around the tree. All having faith that Codi will be found safe and alive.

"It brings hope and faith to bring awareness and keep Codi and everybody strong," Shannon Wilburt said.

Balloons and candles with Codi’s face on them surronded the tree to keep Codi’s name alive.

"I have a grandson who’s two years old. If he went missing I wouldn’t sleep," Wilburt said

"Anybody’s child that’s lost is everybody’s child," Marquita Latta said.

All of the volunteers hope that he’s found safe and alive.

"This is bringing the community together to say he’s not going to be forgotten. He’s a little star in everyone’s eyes right now. " Latta said.

Volunteers say they will continue searching for 4-year-old Codi Bigsby and will expand their search in other parts of Hampton.
