A St. Louis County toddler who was the subject of S.A.R.A.A. and AMBER Alerts is safe.
St. Louis County Police had issued the alerts Monday evening after one year old Tristian Readye was taken from a home in the 2900 block of Patterson Road in North County. Police say the boy had been seen about 8:00 p.m. riding in a stolen Monte Carlo.
Authorities canceled the alerts about 11:00 p.m. after the child was found abandoned in that car at Illinois and South Broadway in South St. Louis.
There's no word if police have caught the person who took him.
ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — After months of investigation, authorities are dismissing an inmate's claim that he knew what happened to a 9-year-old St. Charles boy who disappeared 25 years ago.
Scott Kleeschulte was 9 when he went missing on June 8th, 1988 while walking near a wooded area not far from his home.
Chuck Miceli claimed a former cellmate abducted Scott. Miceli is a former Chicago-area police officer turned informant. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2010 on a federal fraud charge.
Miceli was brought to St. Charles County by U.S. Marshals on June 17th and stayed while police investigated his claims.
St. Charles County prosecutor Tim Lohmar told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the investigation yielded nothing new. Miceli was sent back to a federal prison in Florida.
