Police have urged people call the Greensboro Police Department immediately at 336-706-4230 or call 911 or *HP if they have any information related to the case.

The abduction of Nora came days after another child was kidnapped and then killed in Dallas, Texas. Cash Gernon was allegedly abducted when an 18-year-old suspect named Darriynn Brown crept into his house in the early hours of last Saturday, May 15. Hours later, the four-year-old’s remains were discovered half a mile away from his house. He was found without a shirt and shoes while ants were crawling on his feet. Reports said he died because of several injuries from “an edged weapon.”

At the time of his kidnapping and murder, Cash was living with the former girlfriend of his father, Trevor Gernon, who reportedly has a number of felony warrants out for his arrest. Monica Sherrod was caretaking Cash and his twin brother Carter said, “I loved those boys. They were not even my biological boys. I brought them into my home. I had made this room for them.” She also showed a corner in the house to and said, “There was that little tortoise for them. We put a lot of toys in here. Cash slept at one end of the crib and Carter at the other. This is a six-bedroom house and I put them together at the back of the house because I didn't want them to be alone, I wanted them together.”

“Cash was such a quick learner. We would do this schooling thing every day and he would say, OK mom I'm ready for school. He didn't go to school here, we did it on the kitchen table. He wanted to know how to read so bad. He would always say, what's that say? And what's that say? He loved books. And he wanted me to read the same book over again. Cash was more outspoken than Carter. Cash was the leader. He was the one that showed Carter how to do everything. Cash was the one that was brave enough to follow through with everything,” the 35-year-old added.
