Young Braylen Hunter Clark was announced as missing late Monday. His father was identified as Barry Medlock, 26.

Braylen’s mother was dropped off dead at the Regional One Health Medical Center in Memphis on Sunday, police said, after she sustained an apparent gunshot wound. Officers determined she had a missing 7-month-old son.
