An Amber Alert has been issued in Massachusetts and eastern New York for a New York woman and her 4-month-old son. Police believe the woman and child are being held by a New York man wanted for allegedly committing a triple homicide.
In a statement, State Police urged the public to contact police if they spot a black 2003 Ford Mustang being driven by Matthew A. Slocum, who is believed to be traveling with his girlfriend, Loretta Colgrove, and the couple’s 4-month-old son, Raymond Slocum.
The Mustang has New York license plates with the registration of DED1769, State Police said.
Authorities believe the couple was spotted this afternoon in Gilsum, N.H., and in Adams, Mass., today around 5 a.m.
Slocum is nearly 6 feet tall, weighs about 195 pounds, has brown hair and swastika tattoos on his forearms.
“Reports indicate that Slocum may be holding the woman and the child against their will,’’ State Police said.
Colegrove was described as being 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing about 194 pounds. She has “long straight reddish brown hair, typically worn pulled back with a white or light blue scrunchie,’’ police said.
Police said she was last seen wearing a light blue tank top with thin straps, blue jean shorts and flip flops.
New York authorities said in a statement that Slocum is “armed with firearms’’ and forcibly kidnapped the infant in White Creek, N.Y., at 4 a.m. today.
Slocum is the suspect in an arson fire discovered this morning in the rural community of Eagle Bridge in New York State’s Washington County. The bodies of three people were found inside the remnants of the building.
