Metro Police are asking for the public's help in locating Terrance Eugene Talley, a man they claim abducted his son after an argument with the child's mother. The child was returned unharmed nearly three hours later.

According to police, Talley took the child from the James Cayce Homes on South Seventh Street just after noon despite attempts by the boy's mother to stop him. The mother, Raychelle Young 29, said Talley pulled a pistol and pointed it at her head before taking the child.

Talley drove away and eventually met up with a female friend who lives in the vicinity of Edgehill Homes, police said. He allegedly gave his son to that woman, who brought him to police at 2:45 p.m.

Talley faces charges of especially aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault. He was last seen on foot in the Edgehill area.  

Anyone seeing him or knowing his whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
