Largo police detectives continue their search for a 2-year-old boy believed to have been kidnaped by a stranger Saturday night and admit they’re still looking for a “big break” in the case.
At a news conference Tuesday morning, Maj. Stephen Slaughter told reporters that the agency has received roughly 60 to 70 tips, but nothing has led them to Jordan Belliveau.
The boy’s mother, Charisse Stinson, told detectives she accepted a ride with a stranger named Antwan Saturday night near Lake Avenue and East Bay Drive.
She claims Antwan knocked her out and took off with the boy around 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Stinson reports that she woke up in Largo’s Central Park around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
The boy was nowhere to be found and an AMBER Alert went out.
“Do you think she’s been 100 percent truthful with investigators?” 8 On Your Side reporter Ryan Hughes asked.
“I feel that she’s answered all our questions so we can continue our investigation,” Slaughter said.
Detectives want residents and business owners in the area to check security systems for any video that might provide clues.
Meantime, investigators plan to scour the area and check hidings spots and trash cans for any details that could lead them to Jordan.
When asked if they’ve become frustrated with the case, Slaughter told reporters that the agency is “encouraged” that they’ll find the boy.
Police plan to hold another news conference at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
