GROVES, Texas — Authorities discontinued an AMBER Alert that had been issued for a 4-year-old boy who police believed to be in grave danger.
Jaiceon Robertson has been found. An AMBER Alert for him was issued on June 11, 2021, shortly after 5 p.m. and canceled around 10 p.m. the same day.
Police had reason to believe the boy was abducted by his father 34-year-old Blake Robertson.
Police said the child was picked up by Blake Robertson on Saturday, June 4, 2022, and was supposed to be returned to his mom on Sunday, June 5, 2022, but was not.
The mother texted Blake Robertson for "two or three" days, Groves Police Chief Deputy Kirk Rice told 12News. Blake Robertson eventually stopped responding to the mother.
Jaiceon Robertson's mother attempted to reach out to Blake Robertson's friends and family to see if they knew where he was, but her attempts were unsuccessful. She contacted Groves Police on Friday, June 10, 2022, concerning the ongoing situation.
Groves police learned Blake Robertson lived with his mom in Houston, so Houston police were sent to her residence to see if they could find him. Their attempts were unsuccessful.
Jaiceon Robertson's mother told police that Blake Robertson threatened to kill police and their son if law enforcement got involved.
This is a developing story. We will update with more if and when we receive more confirmed information.
