Already, 22-year-old Cardale Linson and 25-year-old Jamarcus Tate have been arrested in connection to the case.
Authorities said they questioned Hopes and Natasha Tate about the whereabouts of Donte Tate and a surveillance team saw them at Donte Tate's hideout, which is also Tranisha Hopes' apartment on Stumberg Lane.
When authorities searched the apartment at 5214 Stumberg, Donte Tate was gone.
