ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police have issued arrest warrants for the father and paternal grandmother of a 5-year-old boy taken from a hospital where he was on a heart transplant waiting list.
The department issued a statement Wednesday saying it had issued felony warrants for kidnapping, interfering with custody and endangering the welfare of a child against 33-year-old Jeffery Stone and his mother, Rhonda Marie Matthews.
Authorities accuse Mr. Stone of abducting his son, Porter Stone, from St. Louis Children's Hospital on Tuesday. The hospital warned that Porter had only about a day’s worth of medication left in a portable IV when taken.
St. Louis police said that Illinois State Police found the boy, his father and his grandmother in Alsip, near Chicago, early Wednesday and that Porter seemed fine but was taken to a hospital.
