WHAT HAPPENED – Smyrna Police responded to a domestic dispute between a man and woman. The male assaulted the female and left with their infant son. We need your assistance in locating this child since he was born premature, is only two weeks old and we are concerned for the child’s safety. We do have active domestic assault warrants on file for the male.
The child’s name is Dawson Asher Bonner and he is 2 weeks old. He is a light skinned, black male with blue eyes and brown hair. He is wearing a dark blue onesie with tan vines on the material and should be in a red car seat behind the front passenger seat.
UPDATE 4:47 AM – The father/suspect released the child to a relative earlier this morning. That relative released the child to law enforcement and the child was taken to a medical center for evaluation and treatment.
The child is safe and has been returned to his mother.
