A Stony Brook mom is wanted in connection with the abduction of her five-year-old son, Suffolk County police said Thursday.
The missing person investigation comes after Kristin Kapp failed to comply with a family court warrant issued on April 27, ordering her to turn her son over to Suffolk County Child Protective Services, police said.
Kapp allegedly ignored the order and abducted the child, police said.
The warrant was issued because of alleged child neglect, according to police.
Sebastian Parsons-Kapp was reported missing on Tuesday by his father, who previously had an order of protection that prohibited contact with the child, police said.
Mother and son are believed to be in New York, possibly in New York City, police said.
Anyone with information about the pair’s whereabouts is asked to call 911 or Sixth Squad detectives at 631-854-8652.
UPDATE: The five-year-old-child has been located and is in the custody of Suffolk County Child Protective Services, police said.
