A search of a Battery near downtown Charleston was called off. Police had originally been led to believe a missing boy fell over the wall into the water. Now, they think this information is false. WMBF reports that 2-year-old Rodricus Fred Williams has been missing since Tuesday night.
According to WMBF, “Summerville police have arrested the child’s father, 28-year-old Roger Williams. He had the boy the past two months and was supposed to return the child to his mother Tuesday night. The boy’s parents are in a custody battle.” The father already has four warrants for his arrest. Authorities say, in addition, he is not being cooperative in the investigation.
Police still do not know where the boy is.
