CHICAGO (CBS) — Police on Thursday were asking for the public’s help in finding a father of four who has been knowingly hiding his children from their mother – and who is now missing along with the kids.
Brian Barajas, 38, is wanted on a warrant from Cook County for Child Abduction issued Wednesday.
Police said he has deliberately concealed his four children from his ex-girlfriend, their mother, since January 14.
Barajas is a Hispanic male with black hair and brown eyes, standing 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds.
His four children are:
• Daughter Breneah Barajas, 13, who has black hair and brown eyes, stands 4 feet 11 inches tall, and weighs 85 pounds;
• Daughter Destiny Barajas, 11, who has black hair and brown eyes, stands 4 feet 9 inches tall, and weighs 80 pounds;
• Daughter Jazmyne Barajas, 4, who has black hair and brown eyes, stands 3 feet tall, and weighs 35 pounds;
• Son Nathaniel Barajas, 2, who has black hair and brown eyes, stands 2 feet 8 inches tall, and weighs 25 pounds.
It is suspected the children may be with Barajas or other family members in the West Ridge, Irving Park, or Belmont Cragin community.
