The police in San Antonio said Monday the alleged kidnapping of an 8-month-old boy was “a staged event” and “made up to cover-up foul play.”

Christopher Davila, 34, called police Friday night to report that his car was stolen from a gas station, while his son, King Jay Davila, was in the vehicle. Surveillance images showed that Davila had his car running and the door open while he went inside the station to the shop to buy some items. The images showed a woman in the car and driving away.

On Monday evening, San Antonio police chief William McManus said the King Jay Davila is never in the car, which was found in a nearby park with the keys missing and no sign of the child.

The researchers identified the woman who stole the car as Christopher Davila’s cousin, who has been arrested on unrelated charges. Davila was arrested and charged with child endangering.

The boy’s mother, Jasmine Gonzales, disputed McManus’ account.

“Whatever they say, that my fiance has a part of this whole kidnapping is wrong,” she told Fox 29. “I was on the phone with him the whole time.”

“We understand the fear and pain the mother is feeling right now,” McManus said in a comment. “But, I think that the information that we have today refuted all charges against the San Antonio police department.”

The search for the toddler is ongoing with the help of the FBI.

“We know that there are more people who have information about this case, what happened to the King Jay,” McManus said. “There is an answer that we don’t have, and that is where the King is Jay?”
