A man that does not have custody of his two boys took them away from his mother’s home while she was sleeping today from the 24800 block of Normandie Avenue in Harbor City Ca. Charles Samuel Baines’s mother has custody of the boys, Charles Jr., 10 and Nathaniel James Baines, 9 and the father did not have permission to leave with the kids. They took off in Baines’s mother’s car which is a red 2008 4-door Kia Spectra with the license plate #6FMN288 according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s officials.
Charles Baines is described as a 6 ft 4 in tall black male that weighs about 270 pounds with a shaved head. He has the words “Drug Cartel” tattoed on his left cheek on his face. He is also said to be currently out on parole and is reported to have some mental issues.
Authorities say they have reason to believe he may be in Mexico right now. The Sheriff’s office is asking that if anyone knows anything about the whereabouts of Baines or his children to please contact them by calling the Sheriff’s Carson station at (310) 830-1123 or if they want to make an anonymous call, please call Crime Stoppers by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477) or text the letters TIPLA plus you tip to CRIMES (274637)
I pray these boys are found safe.
