A spokeswoman for the Milwaukee police says the case of two boys who have been missing for a week has turned into a criminal investigation.
Spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz wouldn't reveal why police are reclassifying the case. She says it wasn't because of a single detail but because of an amassing of information.
12 year old Quadrevion Henning and 11 year old Purvis Virginia Parker were last seen a week ago. They told Henning's grandfather they were going to play basketball.
Schwartz says police still have no information on the boys' location or condition. Nor have police found evidence that a crime has been committed.
Schwartz said yesterday investigators believe the boys are still in Milwaukee.
A Web site has been set up with information and a poster of the boys. The site is www.henningparker.com.
