MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is joining the search for a missing boy with autism.
Authorities say 6-year-old Jojo Morales has not been seen since Saturday.
He is believed to have been taken by his father, 45-year-old Jorge Morales.
He and the child’s mother have had a contentious custody battle since they split three years ago.
The family went to pick up Jojo from Morales’ house in southwest Miami-Dade along Southwest 184th Avenue Saturday evening, but the two of them were nowhere to be found.
Jojo’s father drives a gray 2006 Ford Expedition with the license plate CSI-U53.
Anyone who thinks they’ve seen Jojo or has any information on the child’s whereabouts is urged to call Miami-Dade police at 305-596-8176 or the FDLE at 1-888-FL-MISSING.
