BOLIVAR, MO (AP) – Authorities have issued an endangered person advisory for a 4-year-old boy who was taken from a courthouse during a custody dispute.
The Polk County Sheriff’s office says the boy was taken from the courthouse in Bolivar Thursday by his father. The boy’s grandmother had been awarded custody after she alleged the father was abusing the boy.
The boy is white, 3-feet-1-inch and weighs 44 pounds. He has blonde hair and blue eyes with a fair complexion.
His 36-year-old father, Timothy Lormand, is 6-foot-1-inch and 165 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
The sheriff says Lormand may be driving a silver 1993 Buick Le Sabre or 2014 Ford Explorer. A license plate number wasn’t available.
Authorities believe Lormand and his son could be headed to Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
