Police in Oakland this morning will hold a news conference to discuss an investigation into the whereabouts of Hasanni Campbell, a boy who disappeared one year ago this month at the age of six.
The news conference, scheduled to begin at 8:20 a.m. at the Oakland Police Department, will be lead by homicide investigator Sgt. Gus Galindo, according to police spokeswoman Holly Joshi.
Hasanni was reported missing by his foster father, 39-year-old Louis Ross, who said the boy disappeared Aug. 10, 2009 from a car parked outside a shoe store in Oakland’s Rockridge neighborhood.
Oakland police have said they are investigating Hasanni’s disappearance as a homicide.
In August 2009, police arrested Ross and 30-year-old Jennifer Campbell, Hasanni’s aunt and foster mother, but the district attorney’s office declined to file charges because of insufficient evidence.
