As we reported last night the two young brothers have been found safe and sound. A good Samaritan dropped the two youngsters off at the San Ysidro US/Mexico border crossing where they were picked up by Sheriff’s and driven to their home in Los Angeles.
Charles Baines Jr, 10, and Nathaniel Baines, 9, were both taken by their father from their home while their grandmother was sleeping without the grandmother’s permission as was reported here. We can now reveal that the police had a good idea where the two children were based on cell phone pings. BNN chose not to reveal this earlier in order not to compromise the search.
While the children are safe and sound and back with their legal guardian, grandmother Judith Baines, their abductor, father Charles Baines Sr. remains at large. According to grandmother Judith Baines her son is bi-polar and does not have his medication with him. It is also strongly suspected that he is self medicating with Crystal Meth.
His exact whereabouts remains unknown but is strongly thought to be living in a two room shack in Tijuana. Also unknown is the location of the red Kia Spectra with license plate #6FMN288 which was used in the abduction. Judith Baines said, “We just want him to turn himself in & come back to face the penalties — as long as he is alive then we can always have hope – but better here than there.”
At 6’ 4”, with brown eyes, a shaved head and with a distinctive tattoo on his cheek ‘Drug Cartel’ Charles Baines hardly melts into the crowd. If you or anyone you know has any information on the whereabouts of this man please call the watch commander at the Carson Sheriff’s Station at 310-830-1123.
