Town police have closed their investigation into the August abduction and disappearance of a 4-year-old boy who was returned to his mother unharmed.
Authorities at first arrested 58-year-old nanny Blanca Castro in the disappearance of Dominic Caprio, but dropped the case in September after determining that she was not involved in the incident. Police closed the investigation without filing additional charges.
Dominic disappeared on Aug. 11 from a home in the town’s Abacoa section, prompting authorities to issue an Amber Alert. His mother told investigators Blanco was last the person who had been with child.
Investigators said Dominic’s grandparents may have been involved as they were in an apparent custody battle with the child’s mother. The child was returned 24 hours after his disappearance after a legal mediator arranged for his return.
