NATIONAL CITY (CNS) - A two-month-old boy abducted by his natural mother in violation of a court order has been taken into protective custody by social workers in Mexico, police said Sunday.
The baby, Maximus Garcia, is in the care of Desarrollo Integral De La Familia in Mazatlan, said National City police Sgt. Christopher Sullivan. The mother, Erika Ramos, took Maximus during a supervised visit on Nov. 8 and threatened to kill the boy.
She fled to Mexico with the baby, in violation of a court order, Sullivan said. Police have not located Ramos, who is believed to still be Mexico.
The California Child Protective Services is arranging for Maximus to be returned to National City.
