Search Continues for Missing Baby in 'Extreme Danger'
The search continues across Indiana for 1 month-old Delano Wilson while the baby's father is arrested on unrelated charges.
WXIN is reporting that Willie Wilson was arrested Wednesday night on a possession of marijuana charge.
A statewide amber alert was also issued Wednesday.
Meanwhile, just this afternoon WXIN reported that the boy’s mother, Taniasha Perkins, spoke to the media for the first time Thursday morning. The new mother told WXIN, “I don’t wish this on other parents. I’m too young to be going through this. I just got my job two days ago. I was going to provide for my baby,” she continued. “He means the world to me and his dad. We are good parents. We work hard. We work really hard to provide for a child. And for you to take him away is just tearing a hole in my family and in my heart he doesn’t deserve this. Please, please let my son go.”
Police say the boy is in extreme danger.
According to police, the child disappeared after a white man and hispanic woman approached the father, robbed him and pistol-whipped him.
The boy’s father, Willie Wilson, told police it happened in the 1400 block of Henry St. in Indianapolis.
When the father regained consciousness, he said he saw his child being loaded into a blue 4 door Ford Taurus.
WXIN is reporting, police were looking for an unknown white male, 25-30 years old, 5’6”-5’9”, tall/medium build, short brown hair, wearing a black do-rag, red t-shirt, blue jean shorts and red, black and blue tennis shoes. He was accompanied by a Hispanic female, 25-30 years old, thin build with long brown hair, wearing a green shirt and matching green hoop earrings. They were last seen driving a older model blue 2000-2003 four-door Ford Taurus.
Authorities say the father does not know the identity of the suspects.
Anyone with information should call 911 or contact IMPD at 317-327-6540.
