Dwan Wakefield, McBride and D'Allen Washington were taken into custody Thursday and booked into the Madison County Detention Center.

Mississippi Bureau of Investigation launched the search Thursday morning, after Kingston Frazier, 6, was seen in a stolen vehicle taken from a Kroger on I-55 North in Jackson. Police say a "person of interest" is in custody and authorities are searching for a second person.

The boy's uncle said he was sleeping in the auto when his mother went inside the store. Guest says the other two do not yet have lawyers. He also said he is a former member of the football team.

Kingston's family members were not informed of the tragedy until after police held a news conference.
