"We're just asking, regardless of who you are, what you are and where you are, if you could just return the child", the child's uncle, David Archie, told the Clarion-Ledger. They issued an Ambert Alert at 4:15 a.m., but around 9:30 a.m., they found Kingston dead with a gunshot wound to the back of his head.
But at around 9.30am the authorities confirmed to local news site The Clarion-Ledger that Kingston was found dead with a single gunshot wound, still in his mother's stolen auto.

Police found the kidnapped boy dead in the back of the abandoned Camry about eight hours later on a rural Madison County road about 10 miles from the store.
Frazier had gone missing after 1 a.m. Thursday when a man was seen on video taking the auto from the parking lot of a supermarket in Jackson, the state capital, authorities said.
Authorities publicly disclosed the boy's death Thursday morning while surrounded by grieving family members.
Kingston's cousin Kolby Irby told reporters: "A six-year-old is gone". "His mother has to deal with it".
Madison-Rankin District Attorney Michael Guest said an exact timeline of the incident was not immediately available, citing an ongoing investigation.
Though capital murder convictions carry the chance of the death penalty in ms, only McBride would be eligible because of his age. The three were charged with capital murder and are being held without bail. Three teenagers face murder charges in his kidnapping and killing. "The investigation is early on, and what is being put out on social media is untrue and not factual", MBI spokesman Warren Strain said.
One lawyer said he was not yet officially representing one of them and declined requests for comment.
"Other than it just being somebody being mean and evil and cruel, I'm not seeing a motive begin developed as to why these individuals would have killed this child", Guest said.
