DARTMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) – Massachusetts State Police have lifted an AMBER Alert after they say a mother and child have been found and a suspect was in custody following a reported kidnapping.
In an update, MSP said all of the parties that were the subject of the alert were found in Fall River.
Officials originally announced that Hannah Benson, 23, and her 6-month-old son, Grayson, were abducted from Dartmouth earlier in the day. The suspect, Jeremiah R. Cabral, 21, was found with them and taken into custody while officers examined the mother and child, police said.
In a post on her Facebook page, MSP said Hannah and Grayson Benson were abducted from their Dartmouth home by Cabral, the mother’s former boyfriend. State police believe Cabral, a Fall River resident, was armed with a knife at the time and that the mother, concerned for her child, got into the suspect’s vehicle before it drove away.
According to officials, a preliminary investigation found that the suspect allegedly broke into the victim’s Tucker Road home at around 11:20am, which led to an altercation and the display of a knife. In her Facebook postMSP added that it was not clear if Cabral was the father of the 6-month-old child.
Details on Cabral’s condition or mother and child have not yet been released.
