INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indianapolis police are asking for the public to help them find a missing 5-month-old boy believed to have been abducted by his non-custodial mother.

Police say the infant, Parker Williams, is a ward of the state and was taken by his mother, 37-year-old Regina Williams, Wednesday.

However, the boy’s grandmother said this is all a misunderstanding and it stems from an accident in January when her daughter, Regina Williams, slipped and fell with Parker in her arms. Regina Williams then took her son to the hospital and doctors diagnosed the boy with fractured skull. Medical professions then called child services and police.

Williams told police it was an accident, but after further investigation detectives believe otherwise and charged Williams with neglect.

“We received additional details from other sources that that wasn’t accurate and that it was in fact more of neglect issue,” IMPD Officer Jim Gillespie said.

Officers believe the mother has fled with the baby to Louisville. She is believed to be driving a 2001 Mercedes-Benz model C300 with Indiana plate number WJY311.

The child is described as being 24 inches long and weighing 15 lbs. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

Police say an Amber Alert has not been issued, because the case doesn't meet the criteria.

Anyone with information is urged to call the IMPD Missing Persons Unit at (317)327-6160 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at (317)262-TIPS(8477).
