Car Found in Search for Missing 6-Month-Old of Incarcerated Parents

A car tied to the mysterious disappearance of a 6-month-old boy whose parents are incarcerated was found Friday, police said. 

Police began the search Thursday for the infant, whose incarcerated parents' last known address was a family shelter in Culver City.

The Los Angeles County Department of Child and Family Services reported Jacsun Manson missing on Jan. 25, according to Culver City police Lt. Troy Dunlap.

"Jacsun's parents were recently arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department," he said. "At the time of their arrest, the parents were not with Jacsun."

According to witnesses, the infant was last seen on Dec. 31 with his parents, prior to when they were taken into custody, Dunlap said.

The parents -- identified as Adam Manson and Kiana Williams -- were arrested Feb. 2 after being found in a stolen car and are jailed in Los Angeles County, he said. Investigators have questioned the pair -- who are both being held without bail -- but have not been able to locate their son, Dunlap said.

Investigators suspect that the parents previously stole a different car that has not been recovered, the lieutenant said. The blue 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser was missing a bumper and has likely had its license plates removed, he said.

It wasn't immediately clear if the car found Friday afternoon was the suspected stolen Chrysler. 

"The family was seen in this vehicle, and are known to frequent (the area) of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard (in the Hyde Park section of South Los Angeles)," Dunlap said.

Police said Manson has two aliases: Adam Owens and Adam Jackson.

Anyone with information regarding the child's whereabouts was urged to call (310) 253-6318 to speak with Culver City police Detective Raya. After hours, calls should be directed to the watch commander at (310) 253-6202.
