YORK, Pa. - A police chief in central Pennsylvania said his department's active search for a missing 7-month-old boy has been suspended.
No new information on the whereabouts of kidnapping victim Hamza Ali has surfaced, said Chief Jack Brommer, Columbia Police Dept.
Brommer said searches have included about 10 different K-9 dogs, boats and police officers from several departments.
Ummad Rushdi, the 30-year-old boyfriend of Hamza's mother, is charged with kidnapping and other offenses. Police said he told his brother he shook the child to death and then buried him somewhere.
A search was focused near Columbia because that's where Rushdi's vehicle became disabled more than a week ago, after he allegedly took the child from a home in Upper Darby Twp., Delaware Co.
Pennsylvania is closer to complying with a federal law that requires people to prove they are legal U.S. residents in order for their driver's licenses to be valid for federal purposes.Read More »
