Florida Man Tried to Trade Baby for Food
"He was holding the baby like it was a doll. That's what it looked like at first," witness Brian Boyle told News 4 Jax. "It looked like a doll. That's why I questioned him, 'Yo, what are you doing?'"
Another witness said that he knocked on his door and offered to trade the child for food. Several people at the motel called police, but they did not arrive in time to catch the man.
Police believe the man and child may have been spotted getting into a taxi cab at a nearby McDonald's later that night, but have not been able to either locate or identify the man or child. No reports of missing children have been made, but police are eager to determine the safety and welfare of the child.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Orange Park Police Department at 904-264-5555.
