They may be traveling in a black 2003 Ford Mustang, with two doors, and bearing N.Y. registration DED1769.
Reports indicate that SLOCUM may be holding the woman and their child against their will. We have further information that SLOCUM may be armed. We believe they were traveling on North Street in the Town of Adams, Massachusetts, at approximately 5 a.m. this morning.
We will update you if and when an AMBER Alert is activated in the state of Massachusetts or when there is new information to report. At this point, there is no further information available. Media may report the above information, as we have enough information at this point to have concern that this child and his mother may be in danger. Media may also note that an AMBER is being considered. Please ask anyone who sees these people or the vehicle, or know anything of their whereabouts, to call 911 immediately.
