Houston Police are investigating the case and said they haven’t verified whether he ever made it to school in the month of May.
"Dalton is not a bad father. He would never harm that baby. He loves him to death. He would die for him. And if you’re a parent, you understand what he’s going through right now. And the possibility of trusting someone you thought you knew could do this? We have to have answers. Now whether the other family is involved, I don’t know, but whoever is, this is Sam."
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of 6-year-old Samuel Olson or his father‘s fiancé Teresa is asked to call Houston Police or Texas Equusearch.
