Updated at 12:42 a.m., July 16, 2011

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The NYPD has activated a New York state Amber Alert for a missing Brooklyn toddler.

The boy – 3-year-old Ferrari Tiesto Stojka – is white and has brown hair and brown eyes. He is approximately 3 feet tall and weighs 40 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white shirt, white shorts and a Yankees hat.

Authorities said 34-year-old Jacob Lasco, described as a white man with blonde hair and blue eyes, assaulted the child’s mother and abducted him before fleeing on foot around 3:30 p.m. on Friday.

The incident took place at the intersection of Ocean Parkway and Avenue P in Midwood.

Police said Laslo, approximately 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans.

Police said Laslo resides in New Jersey, but was last known to be in Manhattan.  He was last seen traveling on foot.

Anyone with any information on this abduction is asked to call the New York City Police Department at (866)NYS-AMBER or dial 911 to provide information on a report or sighting.

    Poor job on the part of the CBS website. They didn’t link this current page with the article that the boy was found ( but they still have the “headline” of the amber alert in effect on the other pages. PAY ATTENTION CBS!

    omg! watch your children! this is insane.

    • Betsy

      Did you miss the part where the mother was assaulted and that’s how the child was taken? How on earth does that indicate that the mother WASN’T watching her child?

    I got a text alert saying the Amber Alert was cancelled at 2AM. Was the boy found? Why hasn’t CBS updated the story?

    • Ragnar Danneskjold

      Amber Alerts are useless since most of the time it is a domestic dispute (as these facts imply) and this guy is probably the boy’s father engaged in a custody battle.. That’s why he assulted the mother, they have a picture, where he lives, etc.

      Waste of time. 99% of kidnappings are part of domestic custody disputes. Amber Alert should not include such cases.

    Some people are out of their minds. Why all these idiots are abducting and killing kids? This is really sad.

  • Gerald Waldman

    And the Midwood neighborhood is (or at least was) a good neighborhood.

  • Eytan

    Is it Lasco or Laslo
