An Amber Alert was issued this morning at 6:15 am.

Lonzie is described by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office as having blonde hair, blue eyes, weighing approximately 20 pounds. He was last seen only wearing a diaper.

According to WJAX, Lonzie’s mom’s boyfriend put Lonzie and his five-year-old sister in his car around 2:30 am Friday to pick up their mother from work.

Before leaving, the boyfriend ran back inside for a moment with the little girl in tow, because she was scared.

When the boyfriend went back outside, he tells police, he saw someone take off with his car with the little boy still inside.

The Jacksonville’s Sheriffs Office said that Lonzie was not strapped in his carseat at the time the vehicle was suspected to have been stolen.

The vehicle was found blocks away from the boyfriend’s apartment. Lonzie was not inside.

The police have talked with the child’s biological father, and they do not believe he is involved.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department is asking anyone who has seen the vehicle or has any information regarding Lonzie Barton to call 904-630-0500 or the FC Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
