New info in case of missing 2-year-old

Authorities said Wednesday they are looking for new clues in the disappearance of a 2-year-old boy. A witness told Marion County sheriff's detectives he saw a couple in a Cadillac Escalade with Melinda Duckett, the mother of missing Trenton Duckett, the week before he disappeared Aug. 27. The couple, described as Asian or Hispanic in their late 50s to early 60s, were driving a silver or gold sport utility vehicle with a possible New York tag, said Marion County sheriff's spokeswoman Susan Livoti. Trenton's mother committed suicide Sept. 8 after being questioned aggressively about the disappearance by CNN talk show host Nancy Grace during a taped program.
