DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - The frantic search for a missing toddler in Dallas has now entered a second day. 

The Amber Alert for 18 month old Cedric Jackson was upgraded to a statewide alert last night. He was last seen Tuesday night at a family apartment on Whitehurst Drive. 

Cedric's aunt says she put him to bed around 11 that night, and when she woke up, he was gone. 

Police have questioned Cedric's relatives. They had a person of interest, believed to be another relative. That man is described as black, in his 40s, about 5 foot 7 and 170 pounds. Police say when they caught up to that man, he didn't have Cedric, but he was arrested on other charges. They have not named any additional suspects. ​
