INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — IMPD investigators are asking a non-custodial mother, who they believe abducted her 5-month-old son, to turn herself in.
Police say the infant, Parker Williams, is a ward of the state and was taken by his mother, Regina Williams, to Louisville on Wednesday.
Williams’ custody was stripped after a January incident left Parker with a fractured skull.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Regina Williams claimed the infant was hurt when she dropped the child after she slipped and fell on a wet floor.
The affidavit says an investigation into the incident revealed that Williams had actually dropped her son, because she was too drunk to hold onto him. The affidavit states that the 5-month-old was not taken to the hospital until three days later.
Police says they do not believe the child is in any immediate danger and is still in Louisville with his mother.
“Our first concern is getting not only mom in custody, but the safety and welfare of the child as well,” IMPD Sargent Kendale Adams said.
Adams said the department is currently working with multiple agencies to help track Regina’s location. Right now, Adams says the best thing Williams can do is turn herself in.
“You know police are looking for you to turn yourself in so we would urge her to go ahead and do that to local authorities in Louisville or wherever she may be and let us begin the process of trying to sort through this and figure out what is going on,” Adams said.
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).
