(HOULTON, ME)– The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is reporting that a six-year-old boy who was taken from South Florida, was spotted on surveillance at a store in Maine.
Jo-jo Morales who was reported missing out of Miami on August 27, was spotted walking into a Walgreens in Houlton.
The child was said to have been in the company of his father 45-year-old Jorge Morales and his paternal grandmother 68-year-old Lilliam Peña Morales.
Both suspects are facing charges of custodial interference.
An investigation leads authorities to believe that the group may still be in Maine or in Eastern Canada.
A combined reward of $25,000 has been offered by the FBI, U.S. Marshals, and Miami Dade Crimestoppers for Jo-Jo Morales’ return.
