MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities are asking the public’s help in finding a 6-month-old baby who was abducted from foster care by his mother, a non-custodial parent.
Sgt. William Palmer of Minneapolis police said officers responded to the abduction, which happened shortly after 1:45 p.m. Wednesday, at a house on the 2400 block of Sheridan Avenue North. The child’s name is Shaquan Rulford (pictured above).
Shaquan was taken by his mother, 16-year-old Kamarei McCabe (pictured below), police said. She was visiting Shaquan during a court-ordered and supervised visitation when the abduction occurred.
McCabe was last seen with Shaquan just before noon.
McCabe is described as a five-foot, four-inches-tall girl with a light build and long, straight black hair. Police say McCabe may not be able to properly care for Shaquan. She may even pose a threat to him.
Shaquan was last seen wearing a red T-shirt and brown plaid shorts. He has a birthmark on his right arm and he weighs 19 pounds.
McCabe and Shaquan are likely still in north Minneapolis, police said.
If you have any information on McCabe and Shaquan’s whereabouts, call 911 or 612-673-2345 if you live outside of Minneapolis.
