Police investigating the deaths of a mother and her two young children said they're looking for a third child, a newborn, who might have been taken from the south side apartment, Capt. Kurt Leibold of the Milwaukee Police Department said.
"The most important thing right now is we need to find this baby boy," Leibold said.
The 6-week old boy's name is Maurice Visor.
Maurice's 24-year-old mother and his siblings, a 4-year-old boy and 3-year-old girl, were discovered dead Friday morning when firefighters responded to a blaze at their south side second-story duplex apartment, 838 S. 12th St.
"We're still investigating the origin of the fire," Leibold said. He would not offer details about what firefighters discovered on the scene and did not name the mother or the two older children.
Leibold said police believe Maurice is in danger. Investigators said that the person who might have taken Maurice was not his father, Leibold said.
Investigators also note that two cars are missing from the south side home. Police are looking for a white Ford Thunderbird with the license plate 840-MNJ and a blue Ford Taurus that does not have license plates.http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/85506857.html
