More than 100 volunteers signed up to help in the search for Carnell Chamberlain.

Saturday 12:30pm Update: The FBI has joined the investigation into the disappearance of a 4-year-old boy from the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe. Authorities have identified the boyfriend of the boy's mother as a "person of interest" in the case.

Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Police released a statement early Saturday calling Carnell Chamberlain's disappearance "mysterious."
