On July 10, 2021, 3 year old Carlo Ponte was taken by his father, Jorge Ponte, from the Marysville Police Department. A court-appointed guardian was supposed to supervise the visit to determine custody arrangements for the child. Jorge placed Carlo in his vehicle, a white Volkswagen Jetta (WA License ACS6089), and left the police department with him, abandoning the supervision. Jorge has also been known to drive a blue Dodge Caravan (WA License BBC4721).
Jorge later contacted Carlo’s mother and said he would not be bringing Carlo back. Jorge is currently homeless and is known to frequent YMCA’s, community centers and homeless shelters. A protection order has been put in place between Jorge, Carlo and Carlo’s legal guardian. Carlo is developmentally delayed and he is non-verbal. Jorge and Carlo’s whereabouts are unknown at this time, but it is imperative Carlo be returned to his legal guardian immediately.
If anyone has any information on Jorge and Carlo’s whereabouts, please contact the Marysville Police Department at our TIP LINE (360-363-8350).
