St. Lucie County Sheriff asks for publicís help to identify 2-year-old boy left with north St. Lucie County man this morning
This morning, in the Sheraton Plaza neighborhood north of Fort Pierce, two women dropped off a 2-year-old boy at a home where nobody knows the identity of the boy, according to St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

“The boy still has not been identified,” Sheriff Mascara said. “He is under the care of the Florida Department of Children and Families, and we need the public’s help to find out who the boy is.”

The Sheriff asks anyone who knows anything about the boy to call Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-800-273-TIPS (8477.)

“We have received no reports of a missing child, and there are no active Amber Alerts that would apply to this situation,” Sheriff Mascara said.

“Anyone who can help us understand this situation and identify the boy should call 1-800-273-8477 (TIPS) at Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers,” Sheriff Mascara said. “Crime Stoppers will pass along the information to our detectives.”

Two black women in a gold, newer model Mercury Marquis drove up to the Sheraton Plaza home of Randall Hudson, of 5000 El Nueva, Fort Pierce, around 9:30 this morning, Hudson told deputies. He had been taking a nap and said he was not fully awake when one of the women got out of the car with the child, dressed in blue. Hudson described the woman who brought him to the door as 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 180 to 190 pounds, wearing a flowered type shirt and blue jeans. She was wearing a wig.

She told Hudson she had “too much to do,” left the child with Hudson, got back in the car and left with the other woman in the car, Hudson said.

Here is a link to a locator map of Hudson’s neighborhood:


Hudson said several women he is related to live at his home but were not home at the time the child was dropped off. He thought at first the strangers had made arrangements with one of the women in the home to take the child temporarily. He put the child on the couch to take a nap.

When the three other women who live at the home got there, none knew anything about the boy and called 9-1-1.

Deputies canvassed the neighborhood but could find no one who knew anything about the child. They notified the Florida Department of Children and Families, which took the child into the agency’s care.
