Gingras said it is too early to talk about a kidnapping.

"We do not know at this point if a criminal hand is involved or not," he said. "We cannot exclude that hypothesis — but we're not putting it forward either at this point."

"He had asked permission from his mother," he said. "(Monday) was a pedagogical day. When he got to his friend's house the friend wasn't there, he was at daycare. There was a lack of co-ordination. That's all we know."

Police say the boy, who is French-speaking, is black, has black hair and black eyes and was wearing a black coat with a hood, grey pants and yellow shoes before he disappeared.
