A Guerneville woman is suspected of taking her 7-month-old son from the infant's grandmother Sunday, Sonoma County sheriff's officials said Monday morning.
The Sheriff's Office and the California Highway Patrol on Monday afternoon upgraded the incident to an Amber Alert.
Hannah Ruth Ashley, 35, is believed to have taken the boy from his crib at the home of the grandmother, who has legal custody of the child. Ashley made threats to take her child back during recent child visitations, according to the sheriff's office.
The boy, Henry Massey, is described as being 26 inches tall, 15 pounds with brown hair and grey eyes.
The sheriff's office issued a "be on the lookout" alert after the grandmother informed the sheriff's office of the abduction at 8:30 a.m. Sunday. There has never been a threat of violence toward the boy and he is not believed to be in danger, sheriff's officials said.
Ashley drives a silver Subaru Forester with California license plate No. 5JKZ255. She is described as standing 5 feet 6 inches tall, 125 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone who sees Ashley or the vehicle is asked to call the sheriff's office at 707-565-2121 or 911.
