LOWELL, Mass. -- Police in Lowell announced that the search for a 4-year-old boy declared missing on Saturday morning ended at around 9 p.m. when he was discovered in Boston.
Officers believe the boy's mother kidnapped him this morning from his Lowell foster home.
"This is a custody issue with the mother," said Lowell Police Capt. Kelly Richardson. "The child was in Department of Family Services Custody and put into a foster home, and we have a witness who saw the mother take that child today, place him in a cab, and we believe they've gone to Boston."
Police say the boy, Jordan Luciano, is being evaluated at a Boston-area hospital and is in the custody of the Mass. Department of Children and Families.
He was reported missing by his foster father at around 11 a.m. Saturday morning and was last seen wearing red and blue Spiderman pajamas.
Luciano's mother will likely face felony kidnapping charges.
