Officials say Plush called 911 twice begging for help, giving details of his location and a description of the minivan. Later, a Hamilton County deputy also searched and said he saw a van but did not see anyone inside. "Honda does not have any specific information from which to definitively determine what occurred in this incident". "We can confirm that there were no seat-related recalls affecting the 2004 Honda Odyssey".

Plush was found by a family member around 9 p.m.in a parking lot near the school in Madisonville, about six hours after his first call to 911. He looked into a van, but he never looked into the victim's vehicle. They arrived minutes later, reported not seeing anything and attempted to call Plush's phone. The police and sheriff's department are conducting separate investigations, and the county prosecutor's office also is investigating, reports say. The teenager can be heard gasping for help and saying "tell my mom I love her".

During that call, which lasted several minutes, he sounded weaker and something could be heard creaking in the background as the teen took breaths.

Sometime after Plush's first call, the 911 dispatcher called back on his cellphone number, but it went to voicemail: "Hello, this is Kyle".

Twelve minutes after he called, police were at the scene but couldn't locate him.

Smith was placed on administrative leave pending an investigation, police said. "This young man was crying out for help", Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said at a news conference Thursday.

He made two 911 calls, one at 3:16 p.m. and another at 3:35 p.m., and was on the phone with the operators for almost six minutes, based on call recordings. He told this operator he was trapped in a gold, Honda Odyssey van at Seven Hills Hillsdale. "This is not a joke". Officers didn't find anything in the parking lots near the school, so they closed the incident. I ask that our City join me in praying for the Plush family, Ron, Jill and Ali during this very hard time.

"I probably do not have much time left, so tell my mom that I love her if I die", Plush said. Accordingly, I join Vice Mayor Smitherman in asking that the Administration share all memos, reports and relevant emails surrounding the history of the 911/ECC immediately with me and Council. "I'm not certain at this point if we're talking about an equipment malfunction or some type of user error possibly". The dispatcher hears loud banging and Plush doesn't respond to her questions. While it is unclear if there is wrongdoing by the city in this tragedy, we have a profound responsibility to find out. The Hamilton County Coroner's Office said Plush's death was accidental, caused by asphyxia due to chest compression. In other words, his death wasn't the result of foul play or drugs. Issac said a formal interview has not yet been conducted with Smith.

Hedges said the school will have counseling available for students.

The operator then spoke to an unidentified deputy trying to locate Plush.

Mercy Montessori, where Plush was a student from kindergarten to sixth grade, said in a statement, "He was an inspiration to many children and teachers at Mercy Montessori".
