“He needs medicine and if he doesn’t get it he has seizures,” said Gonzales.
Police said the mother has been estranged from the family and has not had a lot of contact with the family. They wanted to issue an Amber alert for the missing baby, but couldn’t.
“An Amber alert requires we provide a license plate, and in this case, the vehicle did not have a rear license plate,” said Sunnyvale Police Captain Jeffrey Plecque.MORE NEWS: Marin County Judge Tentatively Rejects Cutting Inmate Crowding at San Quentin
