LEESBURG — Saturday marks five years since Trenton Duckett disappeared from his bedroom in Leesburg, sparking a nationwide search for the dark-haired 2-year-old. His mother, Melinda Duckett, told police intruders cut through a screen window moments after she put her son to bed Aug. 27, 2006. Two weeks later she killed herself with a rifle in her grandparents' home in The Villages. Trenton would be 7 today and in the second grade.
"We continue receiving leads from time to time," Leesburg police detective Brian Cash said. "The ones we can work, we try to track down, and we get help from other law-enforcement agencies." Leesburg investigators posted an age-progression photo of what Trenton could possibly look like today.
