HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Henrico County Police are looking for a little boy believed to have been abducted by his mother. Nine-year-old Antoine Lamonte Tolliver Jr. was last seen with his mother, Charmaine Jones.

On October 9, Jones checked her son, Antoine Tolliver out of school at Baker Elementary. She has every legal right to do so, but it's what she did afterwards that launched this investigation.

Police believe Jones has likely left the state with no intention of returning.

Jones's custody rights were defined as liberal and reasonable visitation, meaning checking Antionne out of school was okay, but taking him for good is not.

While police do not believe Antoine is in physical danger, Charmaine is wanted for felony parental abduction.

"The fact that he is not with his father, who is his legal guardian as deemed by the court we take all these cases seriously," said Lt. Erin Owens of the Henrico Police Department.

It took more than a month for Antoine's father to sort this all out in court, he was granted sole custody and filed a missing juvenile report.

Authorities say Charmaine has a history of this behavior, but not to this degree.

Police tell us she took Antoine for longer than she was supposed to back in 2007, but returned him safely. Something police want to see happen again.

Charmaine's is known to frequent the Creighton court area, but here last known address is Bolling Road. I spoke with several of her neighbors who were willing to tell me off camera that they hadn't seen her since the beginning of October. They said while she shouldn't be breaking the law, she had a great relationship with her son, and don't believe she would ever harm him.

Police are now hoping someone from Charmaine's past can help them find her. Jones may be driving a red 1991 Ford sedan with Virginia license plate XSF-7504. 

They have reason to believe that she might be in or heading for New York. Call Henrico Police at 501-5000 if you have information that can help.
