(Burlington, Ky.) - Boone County police are looking for a couple and their three-week-old baby.
The sheriff’s office says the parents, 21-year-old Sarah Frank and 34-year-old Stephen Wadsworth, dropped off their three-year-old son, Mason Frank, with a relative, then left with the infant.
They are addicted to heroin and likely unable to care for the baby, say police. Family and friends have not heard from them since.
The couple is believed to be driving a 2001 four-door silver Mitsubishi Galant with plate number 288-CXM.
Call the Boone County Sheriff’s Office if you have information or see the couple.
Since their disappearance, Frank’s mother, Debra Gronotte of Burlington, has obtained an Emergency Custody Order for Mason.
Due to the circumstances, Mason Frank is deemed a critical missing person.
