On Tuesday, July 30, 2019, between 9:00 pm and 10:00 pm, a mother and her live-in boyfriend were in a verbal and physical domestic altercation. The mother put her two small children to bed then temporary left the residence, located in the 3100 block of Grace Street in Riverside.

She returned shortly before 11:00 p.m. and both the suspect boyfriend and children were gone.

Officers arrived and began their investigation in which they determined the boyfriend took the children without the mother’s consent, along with the children’s legal identification documents and other items. He told the mother he was going to a local business with the children but was never located, and never returned home. Based on the officers’ investigation, it is believed the boyfriend may travel to the state of Michigan with the mother’s children.
