Brandon Cueller, a 3-month-old baby boy who was kidnapped from San Jose home Monday afternoon, has been found alive and three suspects are in custody, police said Tuesday morning.
News that the infant had been found came shortly after the California Highway Patrol released a description of a potential suspect vehicle on Tuesday morning. San Jose police announced via Twitter at 9:38 a.m. that Brandon had been located.
Police said the baby will be taken to the hospital “as a precaution.” They have not yet released details about where Brandon was found or who they have in custody.
The kidnapping was first reported to police Monday at 1:03 p.m. Surveillance footage showed a man enter the home in the 1000 block of Elm Street and walk out with an infant car carrier covered with a white blanket.
The suspect was described by police as a Hispanic male with dark complexion and short hair who was wearing black pants, a dark blue shirt, gray shoes, a gray baseball hate and a black face mask. Brandon was last seen in a white onesie with dinosaurs on it. According to police, the family did not recognize the man from the surveillance footage.
The FBI had partnered with the San Jose Police Department in the effort to find the suspect and missing baby, with agents and officers going door to door in the Elm Street area to locate additional witnesses and nearby surveillance footage.
Police said Tuesday that further information will follow on the three suspects and what charges they face.
