In February 2018, 5-year-old Lucas Hernandez from Wichita, Kansas was reported missing by his 27-year-old stepmother Emily Glass. Glass, the last person to see the young boy, previously claimed that he was in his bedroom when she went to take a nap and shower before he disappeared.
Days into the FBI investigation, Glass was arrested on child endangerment charges related to both Lucas and an unidentified 1-year-old child. Additionally, the stepmom had a long history of police encounters, specifically in regards to domestic violence.
Prior to Lucas’ disappearance, police were called to the home several times. On one occasion with Lucas’ father, Glass was convicted of misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
An extensive search continued on for some time, but Lucas or his body were not found until Thursday, May 25th. Sadly, his remains were found under a bridge in Harvest County, according to KAKE.
Police discovered a body of a small person that was “unidentifiable,” but it was later confirmed to be Lucas. That evening, Glass was arrested again for interference with law enforcement after she was reportedly seen in the area earlier that day.

Please keep this family in your prayers during this difficult time. May God bring them peace and comfort as they cope with the loss of this young boy.
