A five-week-old boy is missing after he was stolen from his mother in St Andrew on Sunday, according to the police.
The missing infant has been identified as Nyyear Frank of Hopewell district in the parish.
Half Way Tree Police report that about 5 pm, Nyyear’s mother was walking with him along Rousseau Road in St Andrew when a motor car drove up with three men aboard.

It is the latest in a series of kidnapping cases in the island.
Sources, however, provided a more in-depth detail of what might have transpired.
According to the source, the baby is the child of a teenage mother. She was in contact with someone on Instagram who promised her clothes for the baby.
She was to meet up with the woman in Cross Roads and was walking with the baby on ROUSSEAU ROAD.
A taxi pulled up to her where she was forced inside with her baby.
She was later thrown out of the vehicle and her cellphone destroyed. They left with her baby.
The matter has already been reported to the police. Checks on IG show that the page she was in contact with has already been deleted.
