Michigan State Police are investigating a roadside kidnapping that ended with a 2-year-old boy being found in a ditch this afternoon, 11 hours after his mother reported his abduction from her broken-down car.

Police said that family members found the Washtenaw County toddler, Jarren Laron Jackson, in an Augusta Township ditch roughly 2 miles from the scene of the incident that triggered an Amber Alert.

According to Lt. Mike McCormick, state police received a call about 1:11 a.m. about a woman who called 911 to report a kidnapping near Whittaker and Willis roads. This, according to McCormick, is the mother’s version of events:

She was traveling back to her residence with her three sons — ages 2, 3 and 4 — when her vehicle broke down in the area of Whittaker and Willis. A man wearing a camouflage jacket and driving an old red pickup stopped to offer help. When she refused, the man opened one of the car doors, removed her 2-year-old son and took off with the toddler in his truck, which was last seen on Whittaker Road.

Nothing happened to the other two children, McCormick said. The mother was interviewed by police and was “understandably upset,” he said. Several relatives were involved in a search, which ended with the boy being found in a ditch unharmed, at 12:30 p.m.

The child was checked out by medical personnel and transported to Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor for further evaluation, he said.

“We do have investigators working the scene who are interviewing family members and running down any additional leads at this point to try to identify the suspect,” McCormick said late today.

The mother’s name is not being released. When asked what was wrong with her vehicle, he said he didn’t know.

“I don’t know whether or not our investigators looked at that,” he said.

Police are calling on the public to help find the suspect, who is described as 5 feet, 10 inches. . If anyone recalls seeing a vehicle that stopped on Whittaker Road at any time this morning or afternoon, they are urged to contact the Michigan State Police at 517-241-8000.
