PLANTERSVILLE, Texas — The mother of a missing 3-year-old boy in Grimes County says she believes her son has been kidnapped. Officials from law enforcement say it is unlikely that the kidnapping or malicious intention of the child has been suspected.
Christopher Ramirez last saw him on Oct. 6th at around 1:30 PM. He was there to play with a neighbor dog in the woods near Plantersville.
Ramirez was unable to return the dog, but he did.
Thursday’s statement by the mother of the missing child stated that her son is believed to have been kidnapped.
She said, “I feel like someone stole it and hid” “I have no enemies.”
Christopher’s family claimed that he was unloading their car and started playing with the dog of a neighbor.
According to the mother, she claimed that she turned her back for two minutes and then her son disappeared when she turned around.
She claimed that a neighbor had told her she saw Christopher running after their dog. The mother claimed that she called her son’s name, and then started running, but did not hear any response.
She said that her son was never on the streets with his parents, and begged for their help in finding him.
Don Sowell, Grimes County Sheriff, said that the mother’s claims are not being investigated.
He said that there was no credible evidence or tip to suggest a kidnapping/foul play.
Sheriff Sowell confirmed the fact that the neighbor’s dog returned to its owner without the boy.
Christopher was captured by two dozen law enforcement agencies who brought drones and K9s with them.
Authorities claim that the canopy is too thick to be searched, even by search and rescue helicopters.
