In a similar vein, 3-month-old J’Trevion A. Jeffers was reported missing weeks ago by the Portage County Sheriff’s Office and the Akron Office of the FBI but was soon found by the authorities days after.

Earlier this month, two children kidnapped while in their father’s Honda Odyssey minivan were found in safe conditions. It happened that the kids, Winnifred and Sean, were in their dad’s van while he made a food delivery.

The car was then stolen, and the thief drove away with the kids from Jackson and Latina Streets, where their father was making the delivery. It was around 8:47 pm, and the suspect was a Hispanic male who was armed. 

By 11 pm of that fateful day, authorities put out an amber alert to cover the area of Santa Clara, San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda. And Marin. About three hours later, the kids were found to the delight of their father.
