CA - Sebastian McDonald, 11 months, Redding, 11 April 2012

The Redding Police Department is asking the public's help in locating a missing child that was last seen Wednesday night. Heather Gifford reported to police 7:00 a.m. Thursday morning that her son Sebastian was missing.

Sebastian McDonald, born 04/25/11, was last seen around midnight Wednesday with Gifford's boyfriend Christopher McDonald near the Good News Rescue mission on South Market Street in Redding.

Christopher McDonald has been located but police are still looking for Sebastian.

People staying at the mission told KRCR News Channel 7 that they saw the little boy in a carseat with his mother just before 6:00 am Thursday morning. They saw the mother again about an hour later, but that time, she wasn't with the little boy and she told them she was looking for Christopher.

Redding Police say they have 40-60 people searching for Sebastion. Search is focused on Whiskeytown and Downtown Redding. The search involves the Sheriff's Department, Police Dept., Regional CART team, and now the FBI is involved.

[quote]People who stayed at the Good News Rescue Mission with the missing boy's mom, say her story is not adding up.

They told us the lights go out at 9 p.m. and at that time, both of Heather Gifford's children were with her.

Cheri Sanchez said she slept at the mission right next to Gifford and Sebastian Wednesday night.

She told us when they went to bed, "they were there. This morning, when I got up, the baby was there. Next thing I know, she's looking for Chris and then the baby is missing and that's all I know, but the baby was there this morning."

Sanchez said she saw Sebastian bundled in blankets in a car seat when they woke up around 5:45 a.m. Thursday morning.

Another woman staying at the mission, Susan Ferris, told us that at 7 a.m. Thursday morning, she saw Gifford.

This time Sebastian was not with her.

"She didn't seem like anything was wrong. She wasn't upset or anything and she didn't have the little boy with her. She just had her daughter. The behavior was a little bit odd. I would think that she would be frantic but she wasn't, " Ferris tells us.

She said Gifford was only with her daughter and was looking for her boyfriend, Christopher McDonald.

While we were at the Good News Rescue Mission, Redding Police searched Gifford's car and had it towed away.[/quote]

seems to be lots of inconsistencies around this situation....

http://www.redding.com/news/2012/apr...?clear_cache=1

"Shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday, Gifford left House of Hope with both of her children and went to a hospital in Redding, Bautista said. But when she returned later Wednesday night she did not have Sebastian with her, Bautista said."

"The child, who has blue eyes and brown hair, was last seen with McDonald near the mission on South Market Street about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday."

"Cheri Sanchez, 52, who was also staying at House of Hope, said Gifford told others she had left the boy with a friend, Sanchez said.

But Thursday morning Gifford didn’t seem to know where the boy was, Sanchez said

“Around 7:30 a.m. she started asking, ‘Has anybody seen my baby?’”

All I can say is Wow - confusing! This is also different from the previous versions posted...

Let's hope that baby is found and placed in a safe situation, and the older sister too!

The toddler, Sebastian McDonald, was reported missing Friday morning by his mother after he never returned when he left with her boyfriend, Christopher McDonald. Though both have the same last name, they are not related.

I wish they'd get some basic facts straights

She told someone she left him with a friend then reported him missing? Are these two on drugs?

Sure is. Wondering if she did something with him and is trying to pin it on her boyfriend/brother/whoever he is, or if he did leave with the baby.

Times are hard for a lot of people, and as down as this mother was, I cannot believe that her situation got worse.

Mad times we live in.

Prayers for the mother, and her other child.

What a heartbreaking story ... what could possibly have been in this guy's head to harm a little baby?

God bless you little Sebastian. RIP

This world is such a mess.

Poor little baby. Mother has to accept some responsibility for this crime. She chose to travel, aimlessly it seems, with that boyfriend. Another case where having a play-mate meant more than the child one gave birth to, apparently. Somebody could have, would have, should have loved that child more than life itself.
IMHO
