Anne Arundel County police are seeking the public's help in locating a Crofton boy believed to be with his father, who does not have legal custody of the child.
Colin Jackson, 6, was last seen by his mother, Cheryl Jackson, on Aug. 27, police said yesterday. She told police that her former husband, David Kistler Jackson, also of Crofton, was supposed to pick up the boy from school and take him to his home for a visit. But when she went to her former husband's house the next day to pick up her son, it appeared that father and son had vacated the residence, police said. Cheryl Jackson told police she had tried to contact David Jackson but had been unsuccessful.
Police said they believe Colin is with his father, and that the two could be on their way to Tennessee. An arrest warrant on a charge of noncustodial abduction has been issued for David Jackson, police said.
Police said he was last known to be traveling in a red 1992 Chevrolet Blazer with Maryland registration A184479, possibly with a white trailer with Maryland registration 852347G in tow.
The boy was described as white, about 3 feet 9 inches and about 45 pounds, with sandy hair and brown eyes.
David Jackson was described as white, 46, about 5 feet 10 inches and about 145 pounds, with brown hair, hazel eyes. He wears glasses on occasion, police said.
Anyone with information about the location of the boy or his father is urged to call 911 or contact Anne Arundel County police at 410-222-8610.
