Jorge “JoJo” Morales Bio – Jorge “JoJo” Morales Wiki

Jorge “JoJo” Morales was reported missing from Miami more than two months ago and has been found in a city in Canada. Jorge “Jojo” Morales was discovered “in good health” and “safe and sound” Sunday in Moncton, New Brunswick, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) confirmed on Twitter.





AGE:

Jorge “JoJo” Morales is six years old.

DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:

A 6-year-old Florida boy who triggered an Amber Alert in August has been found “safe and sound” in Canada.





The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Jorge “JoJo” Morales was located in Moncton, New Brunswick, on Sunday, and his father and grandmother were taken into custody.

Jorge Morales, 45, was taken into custody “at a business” in Moncton, the RCMP said, and Lilliam Peña Morales was taken into custody about 40 miles away in Saint-Paul.





Morales and Peña Morales are both wanted for interfering with the custody and concealing of a minor in Florida, as CrimeOnline previously reported.

Jojo was last seen on August 27 when their grandmother picked him up for a scheduled custody visit. When the boy wasn’t returned as expected, his mother, Yanet Concepcion, reported him missing. A subsequent investigation found that Morales’ apartment had been cleaned out and the three — JoJo, his father, and grandmother — were nowhere to be found.





In September, investigators in Maine found an abandoned SUV that contained items believed to belong to JoJo. Earlier this week, the FBI released surveillance footage that showed Morales and the boy entering a drugstore in Maine, followed by Peña Morales. Both of those incidents took place near the border, and investigators said they believed the group to be in Canada at the time.

“This is another example of how local, state, federal, and international law enforcement, along with the United States and State Attorney’s Office coming together for the safety of a child and will continue to work together to fight the greater evil,” Miami-Dade Police Director Freddy Ramirez said in a statement, according to WPLG.





It’s unclear when JoJo will reunite with his mother or when Morales and Peña Morales will be extradited to face charges.

LATEST UPDATE:

Miami-Dade police say Jorge “Jojo” Morales, a young boy who has autism and was kidnapped in late August, allegedly by his father and grandmother, has been found safe in Canada, CBS Miami reports.





Jorge Gabriel Morales and Lilliam Pena Morales have been taken into custody by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The boy was reported in good health and unharmed.

Miami-Dad Police Director Freddy Ramirez called it “another example of local, state, federal, and international law enforcement, along with the United States and State Attorney’s Office coming together for the safety of a child, and [we] will continue to work together to fight the greater evil.”
