Cops searching for man accused of abducting his 2-month-old son

LAWRENCEVILLE — The man accused of abducting his 2-month-old son earlier this week remains on the lam, his last known address in Norcross, police said Friday.

Harold “Jose” Caceres, 21, was last seen late Wednesday when the child’s mother reported that he snatched the infant from his stroller near her home at the Carrington Chase Apartments in Tucker.

According to a police report obtained Friday, Yesenia Campos and a friend were walking outside the shopping center at 6230 S. Norcross-Tucker Road just before 8 p.m. when Caceres, her estranged boyfriend, “jumped out of his car, snatched her baby out of the stroller, got back into his car and left.”

Caceres, his name initially reported with a different spelling, told Campos he was “going to make her suffer” before leaving with the child in a green Honda Accord with Georgia tag number BMX7810, Gwinnett County police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter said.

Campos reportedly told police that she and Caceres were not married when the infant was born, and he had “only seen the child a few times since birth.”

The child, Andy Zoel Campos, was later found unharmed at his grandparents’ home in Luthersville, some 70 miles southwest of the original crime scene, police said.

A warrant for Caceres’ arrest was issued Thursday, officially charging him with interstate interference with custody, a felony. Under Georgia law, anyone convicted on that charge would spend a minimum of one year in prison, with a maximum sentence of five years.

Caceres’ whereabouts remain unknown, Ritter said Friday. Officials said initially they weren’t sure where Caceres lived, but warrants list his last known address at 6250 Dawson Blvd. in Norcross.

He is described as 5-foot-4 and 130 pounds, and was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, black T-shirt and pants, a silver necklace and Nike shoes.
