The officer also issued a plea directly to the suspect.
“Issac if you are watching this, if you’re hearing this, please do the right thing for your son,” he said. “Let us know where you’re at. This could end peacefully. You can still have a relationship with your child.”
The suspect vehicle is described as a white 2019 Toyota Tacoma with the license plate #MDT1625.
