The boy's mother, Nancy Olivia Talamantes is charged with violating custody orders and there is a warrant out for her arrest.
"She took her son back to her place in Aurora. And I think the plan was that she would have a boy for Five days," Lakewood Police spokesman Steve Davis said. "When the father returned to Aurora to pick up the son. She was gone. The son was gone. Everything had been moved out of her residence in Aurora."
The boy's father had been granted sole custody of his son.
Police say they have had no contact with Talamantes. But one theory is she took the boy with her to her hometown of Chihuahua, Mexico.
Lakewood Police would like to hear from anyone who has information about this case.
