A THREE-MONTH-OLD baby was kidnapped from his family’s home in San Jose, California, said police. The FBI is assisting local law enforcement in the search.
Brandon Cuellar’s grandmother was unloading groceries inside the home when a man walked in and grabbed the baby from a bedroom, said San Jose Police Sgt Christian Camarillo.
“Today someone is walking around with a three-month-old baby that they did not have yesterday,” said Camarillo.
“We need the public’s help; we want to find this baby. Obviously, a very devastating time right now for the family.”
Brandon was last seen wearing a white long-sleeve onesie with dinosaurs on it. He was in a black baby carrier with a white blanket draped over it, said police.
The man had walked into the family’s home on Elm Street around 1pm Monday and was seen holding the carrier with the boy inside, said San Jose Police.
A photo of the baby was shared along with photos and video of the man holding the carrier as he walked through the neighborhood.
The man was wearing black pants, a dark blue shirt, gray shoes, a black face mask and a gray baseball hat. He has short hair, according to police.
Police did not issue an Amber Alert because there was no vehicle information for the suspect. Authorities are trying to contact witnesses and obtain more surveillance footage.
Anyone with information on the baby’s whereabouts or knowledge of the man who took him is asked to call San Jose detectives at 408-277-4166.
There are also five hotline numbers with officers standing by to answer calls: 408-537-1142, 408-537-1916, 408-537-1282, 408-537-1522 and 408-537-9066.
Anyone who sees Brandon is urged to call 911.
A cash reward is being offered for information leading to Brandon’s recovery.
