TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – Police are still looking for a New Mexico mom accused of taking off with her 4-year-old son who has severe health problems. State police said the boy is very sick and needs medical attention immediately.
Police say Kingston Rodriguez was last seen with his mom Katrina Bryant in Taos. Authorities said they may be in Texas in a black 2007 Jeep Liberty Sport with New Mexico registration 172-RTD. But their biggest concern is the child’s health.
Officers said the picture released of the 4-year-old is of him in the hospital. They don’t know what his condition is because of medical privacy laws but they know he is sick.
“We are concerned obviously for the sake of the child, he has some significant medical issues that evidently are not being handled, they’re not being treated the way that they should,” said Sgt. Elizabeth Armijo with State Police.
Police said the boy was ordered by a judge to be put in state custody.
Authorities said they have no idea how long ago the mom vanished with the boy. They said the failed court appearance initiated the amber alert.
Police do believe Kingston Rodriguez is in immediate danger because of his health condition. He’s three-foot-eight and weighs 50 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair.
