According to GCPD, Quamaine Finch’s mother was taken into custody in Fulton County last week for unknown charges and the child was initially left in the care of Medy, who is her boyfriend. Custody the child was subsequently awarded to the Division of Family and Children’s Services (DFCS).

“On Tuesday, Nov. 27, at around7:30 pm, officers assigned to the East Precinct, along with a member of DFCS, visited the home of Ricardo (1273 Park Hollow Lane, unincorporated Lawrenceville).  Ricardo refused to answer the door for the officers.  Through a phone conversation, he said that the child was not at the home,” Cpl. Michele Pihera, public information officer for GCPD said in a press release. “He told the officers that Quamaine was with his biological father at an unknown location.”

Pihera said the case was ultimately assigned to a detective in the Special Victims Unit, who secured an arrest warrant for Medy for interference with custody. At this time, GCPD does not know the whereabouts of either Medy or the child. Medy is known to have previous ties to New Jersey, Florida and Georgia.
