The FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children have been called into the case of Jacob McHale. The Stafford County Sheriff’s Office says the 8-year-old boy was abducted Thursday night from his granparents’ home.
Bill and Freida McHale have had custody of Jacob since shortly after he was born. They say the boy’s mother, Carianne McHale, was at their home for a regular visit Thursday night when she grabbed Jacob and ran. The McHale’s say Carianne was assisted by her boyfriend Matthew Borowski and his friend Varun Sethi. The two men are accused of holding and assaulting the couple.
Sheriff’s spokesman Bill Kennedy says it is possible the boy is still in the area. Kennedy asked that anyone who sees the boy or the people who took him to call 540-658-4400.
UPDATE #1: The Free Lance–Star: Police seek third suspect in case of missing child:
A third suspect has been identified in the Thursday night kidnapping of an 8-year-old Stafford County boy who is still missing.
Varun Sethi, 24, of no fixed address, is accused of assisting the child’s mother and her boyfriend in forcibly abducting Jacob McHale from his home on Fence Post Road.
Stafford Sheriff’s spokesman Bill Kennedy said authorities are becoming increasingly concerned in part because Jacob has chronic asthma and his abductors took neither his medication nor his nebulizer.
