Man Reports Missing Car, Not Missing Child - Yahoo! News

Man Reports Missing Car, Not Missing Child - Yahoo! News:
VALPARAISO, Ind. - A Michigan City man called police to report his car missing, but did not mention that his 4-month-old son had been left inside it, authorities said.

Porter County police officers found the car with the boy inside about 11 p.m. Sunday, parked in front of a home a few miles northwest of Valparaiso. They were called by the home's resident, who found the car with the driver's door open, the child inside, and no one else around.

Officers said the baby's father, William Kersey, 30, called two hours later to report the car missing.

Kersey called from a house about a mile and a half from where the car was found. Police said he reported misplacing the car, and did not acknowledge leaving his son behind until he was told officers had found the baby.

Investigators said Kersey told them a confusing story about chasing some people into the woods and becoming lost.

"There appears to be more to the story than we were able to determine," Porter County police Sgt. Timothy Emmons. "His story seems somewhat suspicious."

Officers arrested Kersey, who was with his 4-year-old daughter, on two counts of child neglect and on an outstanding warrant.

Porter County Child Protective Services took custody of both children. Kersey was being held Tuesday in the Porter County Jail without bond.
