MEDICINE PARK, OK — Oklahoma authorities are searching an expansive wildlife refuge in southwest Oklahoma for a suspect in a Norman toddler’s death.

Norman police say 28-year-old Christopher James Trent is a suspect in the death of a 2-year-old boy who was found unresponsive Wednesday at a Norman home. Trent’s pickup was located in Medicine Park, Oklahoma, Wednesday night, and authorities believe he may have fled on foot to the nearby 60,000-acre Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge.

Comanche County Sheriff Kenny Stradley says Trent is familiar with the area, and searchers are planning to use drones and dogs to assist in the search.
