Clarkston, GA — The Clarkston Police Department reported that Blaise Barnett was found safe and in good condition on Thursday, Nov. 11.
But his whereabouts for the day he was missing are unknown, at least to the public, and police haven’t identified any suspects. He was abducted on Nov. 10 at 1 a.m. from 1000 Montreal Road. He was sitting in his car seat when someone made off with his family’s Ford Explorer.
The case has taken some bizarre twists and turns.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that police believe the kidnapping is somehow related to the shooting death of a 60-year-old man in a condominium complex. The suspects in that case are Barnett’s cousins. The victim was not connected to the kidnapping, according to the AJC.
