ST. LOUIS COUNTY (WCCO) — Ever since a crime alert was issued for 7-year-old Wyatt Nordrum Tuesday afternoon, police had been looking for the boy, his father and his grandfather.
Now the grandfather has been located but the search continues for young Wyatt and his 41-year-old father, James Nordrum Jr.
The father has a history of mental issues and reportedly has threatened to harm his son if he were to lose custody.
Tuesday’s alert was issued after the father failed to return the boy to St. Louis County Court. The county said there was a hearing scheduled over the custody issue.
Authorities said Nordrum Sr. was not being cooperative with them.
Nordrum Jr. is described as 5-foot-6, 225 pounds with brown hair and eyes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact law enforcement immediately.
