(CNSNews.com) Police in Fairfax, Va., are searching for 5-year-old Cameron Serafin, who may be in danger and whose hair apparently has been dyed dark brown (from natural blond) to change his appearance. A felony arrest warrant for his mother has been issued and it is believed that she is traveling out west with the boy.
Cameron Serafin, who is 3-feet-5-inches tall and weighs 40 pounds, was supposed to have been returned to his father on Monday, Apr. 8, and police believe he is in the company of his mother, Rebecca Serafin, 32, who may be using the name Rebecca Love.
While a warrant for misdemeanor custodial interference was initially issued in the case, police now say Rebecca Serafin has crossed state lines and, as a result, the felony warrant for her arrest was issued today. The police are asking the public for assistance in locating the boy.
Camerons father, Joe Serafin, told CNSNews.com that Cameron frequently wears a red sweat shirt, enjoys playing on electronic devices, such as an iPad, and that his real hair color is blond.
Rebecca Serafin is 5-feet-4-inches tall and weighs between 120 and 130 pounds. She withdrew all the money in her bank account -- $6,100 on Apr. 2.
According to the Fairfax County Police Department, Rebecca Serafin has altered her appearance, and that of Cameron, in an apparent attempt to avoid being located. Serafins car and other items have been discovered, adding to the belief that she is attempting to remain undetected.
Rebecca Serafins car was located by police in the parking lot of the Lyon Village Shopping Center in Arlington, Va. A passport-size photograph of Cameron Serafin, with dark-brown hair, was found in the car.
Joe Serafin said that Rebecca Serafin had taken the boy once before, in July 2011, and traveled to California. A Fairfax County judge has granted emergency temporary full custody of Cameron to his father, said Joe Serafin.

You know how we keep saying that the media isn’t going to cover it when innocent people start getting targeted by the Feds? First the guy here in Tampa who fled on a sailboat to Cuba. This woman and her kid. I wonder if it’ll turn out that she was at an “anti-government” rally a few months ago?
Anythings possible I guess and being she’s done this before it looks like a well planned thing.
This has long disturbed me. The public are horrified when a child is kidnapped by a stranger. Thus they are all in favor of “Amber Alerts” and things like this.
But what does the public think about lumping child kidnappings by strangers with “custodial interference” from the child’s own parent or parents?
Blurring these two together does an injustice, because it makes the decision of a petty judge as important as kidnapping.
“Man does not show up in court to pay traffic citation. Entire statewide APB out on him. Public asked to be alert for scofflaw!”
Please. Custodial interference should, under some circumstances, be a police matter. But the public has other things to do.
The device is frequently used in Northern Virginia courts for the purpose of allowing folks to beat each other about the head and shoulders ~ and prolong the litigation and increase the fees paid to the lawyers. The judges go along with it because, after all, they're lawyers too and understand the pressing need for income!
The whole point is to create criminals. You can become a registered sex offender by going behind a bush to pee.
hey this father’s rights mantra is sometimes another way for dad to continue his control and infliction of misery on the mother.
You know the tender years doctrine wasn’t always wrong.
Wow, what crap. Parental alienation is wrong. This is kidnapping. .
Obviously dad, who is usually the one with money for a lawyer, wants to keep son from mom, who need we remind everyone, carried the child for nine months, birthed the child and obviously thinks the child is better off with her.
Oh and, parental “alienation” is what is whole and total crap invented by lawyers to get their client’s way. Kids are smart enough not to get brainwashed. Parents try this crap but the kids figure it out.
This is textbook. Kidnapping your child to avoid turning him over for proper visitation is wrong. Don’t care if I have to call out a FReeper for it.
“Obviously dad, who is usually the one with money for a lawyer, wants to keep son from mom, who need we remind everyone, carried the child for nine months, birthed the child and obviously thinks the child is better off with her.”
Right, so the woman is ok to violate a custody order just because she’s a woman? I guess we’re done here. Nothing I say will convince you that it’s wrong to violate a court order.
no, I agree with you it is wrong to violate a court order, I am looking at the story that made the story
