TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A 4-year-old boy has been missing for more than 24 hours and the Terre Haute Police Department is asking for your help.
John Johnson-Christian, 4, hasn't been home since 11 a.m. Tuesday.
Johnson-Christian answers to the name "Jon-Jon" and has brown eyes and brown hair. He is 38 inches tall and weighs about 40 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue and red Thomas the Tank Engine swimming trunks and Spiderman flip-flops.
His mother says she let her ex-boyfriend, Nicholas Runyon, and his current girlfriend, April Bell, take her son to a birthday party, thinking he would return later, but hasn't had contact with her son in more than 24 hours.
Police believe Runyon and Bell have been plotting to take 4-year-old John Johnson-Christian.
The child's mom says she does not believe the pair would harm her son.
Police believe Runyon, 24, and Bell, 28, are driving Bell's 1998 white Dodge Caravan and were heading east towards Indianapolis. Both Runyon and Bell are Caucasian.
The van's license plate is FZ2304 and has butterfly stickers down the passenger side and a fairy sticker on the back window.
An Amber Alert was not issued for this case.
