Merced County deputies are searching for four family members who were kidnapped from a business on Monday.
Authorities are looking for 36-year-old Jasdeep Singh, 27-year-old Jasleen Kaur, their 8-month-old child and 39-year-old Amandeep Singh.
Police say they were taken from ‘a business’ in Merced, California, but they have not shared which business it whether the family owned it.
They have also not revealed how many suspects they believe were involved in wrangling the three adults and infant.
Police have released surveillance footage of one light-skinned suspect in a ski mask, who they say has now attempted to ‘cover his tracks’.
Police are at a loss over the man’s motive.
‘We have a low life out there that kidnapped an eight month old baby, her mom, dad and her uncle.
‘We have no idea why the kidnapping – we have no motivation behind it.
‘We just know that they are gone,’ Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke said in a press conference yesterday.
Police are also yet to reveal what time the family was taken, and if there is any surveillance footage of the kidnapping.
What we know of the suspect
In a Facebook post shared by the Sheriff’s Office, the suspect is seen with a shaved head, a disposable face mask and a black and grey hoodie.
“We believe this to be the suspect in today’s kidnapping. He is described as a light-complected male with a shaved head. He was last seen wearing a hoodie,” wrote the police.
“We consider the suspect to be armed and dangerous. If you see this person, please call 9.1.1. and do not approach him or the victims. We’re asking that anyone with information regarding the identity of this suspect to contact the Merced County Sheriff’s Office Investigations Bureau at 209.385.7445,” the sheriff’s office added.
We strive for accuracy and fairness.
