Missing E. Bay Boy's Foster Dad Speaks Out
Reporting Joe Vazquez

The foster father of a a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy made an emotional plea Wednesday evening for the boy's return and denied any involvement in his disappearance.

"We love him and we miss him and we won't stop looking for him," Louis Ross, foster father of missing Hasanni Campbell, told CBS 5 in an interview from his Fremont home.

Ross' comments came as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local police conducted searches in the Oakland Hills on Wednesday related to the boy's disappearance. On Tuesday, police and the FBI had searched Ross' home.

Authorities declined to comment on the searches and Ross denied a report that investigators had seized a computer from his home.

Earlier Wednesday, prominent Bay Area civil rights attorney John Burris said Ross had agreed to take a polygraph test as requested by police.

Ross later told CBS 5 that while he consulted with Burris, he had not hired the lawyer to represent him. Ross also maintained that he was "cooperating 100 percent" with police and the FBI.

The foster father was the last person to see Hasanni, who has been missing since Monday afternoon.

Ross said he left Hasanni outside his car parked around the corner from an Oakland shoe store where Jennifer Campbell, who is Ross's fiancee and the boy's foster mother, works.

Ross said he was unlocking the store door to give the boy, who wears braces on his feet, easier access. He said the boy was gone when he returned.

In his interview with CBS 5, Ross stressed that the boy's braces were not easily noticeable and urged the public to focus on other features of the boy's description.

Hassani is described as a black boy with light complexion, brown hair and brown eyes. He is about 3 feet tall and weighs around 30 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray pants.

Anyone with information regarding Hassani's whereabouts was urged by authorities to call Oakland police youth services at (510) 238-3641, or 911.

Missing boy's foster dad pleads for his return

Jaxon Van Derbeken, Chronicle Staff Writer
Wednesday, August 12, 2009

(08-12) 20:03 PDT FREMONT -- The foster father of a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy pleaded for the child's safe return Wednesday, saying the family is going through a "nightmare beyond belief" that includes scrutiny from police and the FBI.

Louis Welton Ross of Fremont said he and his fiancée, the boy's aunt, have cooperated "100 percent" with authorities who are trying to find Hasanni Campbell.

An attorney consulting with the couple said Ross took a polygraph test Wednesday, one day after police and FBI investigators with search dogs went through the family's home for several hours.

Ross fears that Hasanni was kidnapped. "If I could talk to anyone who may have taken him, I would say, 'Drop him off and go - but don't hurt him. You have done enough,' " Ross, 38, said in an interview in the family's home on Roxie Terrace.

Ross told police Monday that Hasanni disappeared that afternoon when Ross briefly left him in a car in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood outside the College Avenue shoe store where his fiancée, Jennifer Campbell, works.

The computer engineer said he had left the boy while he unlocked a door to the store, and that when he returned, Hasanni was gone.

Ross said he now understands that authorities must look into family members out as part of their investigation, but that police initially seemed to assume that the couple had done something wrong.

"We were not involved in my son's disappearance in any way," Ross said. "We are cooperating with the police and with the FBI 100 percent."

Campbell, 33, who is six months pregnant, remained upstairs in their home during the interview. Relatives said she gained custody of Hasanni after her sister, the boy's mother, was unable to care for him.
Polygraph test

Ross said he would not talk about the details of the investigation, saying he wanted to make sure he did nothing to jeopardize it. He would not comment on the account by attorney John Burris of Oakland that he had taken a polygraph test Wednesday after initially refusing.

Burris said he was consulting with the couple and had urged them to cooperate with authorities.

"I suggested to them, they need to be candid and truthful with the police," Burris said. "The police should look at them - they need to rule him and her out."

He added, "I don't see anything that suggests anything negative about these individuals."

An FBI expert administered the polygraph to Ross, law enforcement sources said. Special Agent Joseph Schadler, a spokesman in the FBI's San Francisco office, would not comment on the matter.

Campbell did not agree to a polygraph exam out of concern for how the it might affect her unborn child, Burris said.
No sightings

There have been no reports of sightings of Hasanni since Ross says he vanished. Ross said Hasanni would "never have walked off" by himself.

He said the boy wears arch-support braces because of his cerebral palsy, not full leg braces, and that the public may have the idea that he needed the braces to get around. "They are to reshape his foot, give him an arch," Ross said. "He doesn't need them to walk."

After he reported Hasanni missing, Ross said, police seemed to blame the family first. Authorities removed Hasanni's 1-year-old sister and put her in another foster home, he said.

"We were very upset," he said. "We were dealing with a loss of a child, and the other child was taken from us.

"All of a sudden it was like we were thrown against the wall," Ross said. "We had to prove we were not responsible - but our son is out there missing. We cannot be part of the search."

He said family members have distributed flyers in the Rockridge area with Hasanni's photo and other information. The family did not go to the media immediately because "our first and primary concern is the return of our son," Ross said.

"This has been a nightmare beyond belief," he said.
Grandmother's account

Campbell's mother, Pamela Clark, 62, of San Francisco, said she doubted Ross or Campbell were responsible for Hasanni's disappearance. Ross, she said, is "a very professional man. He has a good job, he is very hard-working, a good provider."

Clark added, "I don't think the family's involved at all."

Campbell became Hasanni's legal guardian after her sister, 25-year-old Shemika Campbell of San Francisco, could not take care of him, relatives said.

Clark said Shemika Campbell is "just devastated" by the boy's disappearance.

Court records show that San Francisco officials sued Shemika Campbell and Hasanni's father, Ronald Hughes, starting in 2005, claiming they were unable to support Hasanni.

The actions, one against Hughes and the other against Campbell, were apparently resolved last year with a default judgment entered on behalf of the city. They could not be reached for comment.

The investigation into Hasanni's disappearance has jarred residents on quiet Roxie Terrace, the street in Fremont's Ardenwood neighborhood where Ross and Campbell moved in less than a year ago and kept to themselves. Many in the community of two-story, well-kept homes said they had not seen the boy at the corner house.

"We don't see them outside very much," said Ben Siu, adding, "I hope they find the boy."

Foster Father Of Missing 5-Year-Old Submits To Polygraph Test

Posted: 10:44 pm PDT August 10, 2009Updated: 7:08 pm PDT August 12, 2009
OAKLAND, Calif. -- The foster father of the five-year-old boy with cerebral palsy who disappeared Monday afternoon have agreed to undergo a lie detector test, according to authorities.

Both foster parents were requested to take a polygraph test regarding their version of the events leading up to the disappearance of Hassani Campbell, but only his foster father Louis Ross consented to undergo the test the day after the couple Fremont home was extensively searched for evidence.

Hassani’s foster mother Jennifer Campbell is six months pregnant and reportedly declined the test out of concerns for her unborn child.

More than 48 hours have passed since the little boy disappeared. Ross reportedly left him standing beside his car in a driveway behind the College Avenue shoe store that Hassani’s foster mother Jennifer Campbell managed

Ross said he took the boy's 18-month-old sister with him as he went inside the store to drop her off. When he returned to the car just minutes later to get the boy, he was gone.

Store owner John Riker said he was surprised to learn that Campbell ever had her foster children with her at work.

"Jen's six months pregnant, She has an 18-month-old and a handicapped son," said Riker. "This is not a day care center; it's a shoe store."

However, Riker said he didn’t have a problem with Campbell having the children at the store on rare occasions and described her as “a good mom.”

"I can't imagine any foul play from her end," said Riker.

Police told KTVU that -- despite combing the Rockridge area for witnesses two nights running -- they still have not found anyone who saw Ross with the little boy before he disappeared.

On Wednesday, the foster parents did not open the door of their home in Fremont that police searched the previous night, nor did they return phone calls.

Fremont police spent Wednesday morning searching with dogs within a mile of the house for any sign of Hasani Campbell. They looked in parks, drainage ditches, abandoned houses and dumpsters.

One officer told KTVU police have alerted landfills in Alameda County to be alert for a body. Hasani Campbell is just three feet tall and weighs only 30 pounds.

"These things can go in a variety of directions," said Oakland police Sgt. Ray Backman. "We're hoping and praying it doesn't go off into the direction we're no longer trying to find a missing child but to recover a body. That is our worst nightmare."

Oakland police returned to canvassing the streets in the Rockridge area Wednesday night in hopes of finding a lead in the case. Anyone with information regarding the boy or his whereabouts is asked to call authorities immediately.

I don't think little dude was ever with the "step dad - boyfriend" at all on the day in question. I'm having de ja vu about Jada. I don't recall reading the dogs picked up any scent, did I miss it or they just didn't say?

And I'm wondering why the step dad - boyfriend left him at the car, yet took the baby. I'm not saying he should have left both at the car. He should have walked with both children! I wonder if this was a normal way to drop them off?

I just don't feel as tho Hassani was even there that day, and I'm really hoping that I'm wrong!  an angelic monkey

Jada, Nevaeh, Robert...too many. I think all here agree with you, though we are all praying that we are wrong. It's a shame that we can predict the ending to so many of these cases, once we read the first few articles about them.

Search dogs have been being used since the beginning and again last night and today at the park. Other than not finding little dude, not much has been mentioned regarding if they picked up any scent or not.

Thanks Pink, I was reading thru some of the comments at that link, and seems like a lot don't believe this man's story.

Is he the father of the 18 mo old I wonder? It's not adding up for me. What risks would come to the foster mother by taking a lie detector test, do you know?

Something happened to this child, and it's not good! IMO

The 18 month old is Hassani's little sister. They (the aunt and the BF) are foster parents to both of them. DCFS took custody of the little girl yesterday. His story was he was carrying them in one at a time. There is a video link of him being interviewed either on this page or a page back.

Under most states rules and regulations, pregnant women cannot be examined regardless of where they are in the pregnancy.

I imagine if she had a history of miscarriage or her doctor advised her because of the stress of a high risk pregnancy, she might not take one.

Ooo, I didn't know that,  thank you!

I do remember now reading that they both were foster children. Some of these articles are really bad with their reporting!

Thanks again Pink!

I hope they find this child safe, and soon!  an angelic monkey

As others have mentioned, the reporting on this case is deplorable.  Why can't the media get the story straight! 

We've had the male caretaker described in at least three different ways, father - friend - foster father... Hassani described as being left sitting in the car as well as being left standing outside of it... and the car being parked behind the store as well as around the corner from the store.  Sheesh. 

Am in agreement with those who have wondered if Hassani was ever in that car at the store at all.  Seems we only have the male caretaker's word that he was, no one saw him.        This doesn't look good on the male caretaker, IMO.   Am sure hoping that LE is looking long and hard at him, along with his activities earlier in the day.

I don't think he was there that day either. This feels like it was set up to look like someone took him.

Could the stress of having a disabled child to care for been too overwhelming or was there an accident? I can't decide, but tomorrow is day 3 in the search and the first 72 hours are crucial in a missing child's case.

This does not look good.

I'm praying for Hassani

This video is pretty interesting. It shows the exact area where he "disappeared" from. The officer says he "is NOT" surprised that no one saw anything.

Police Say It's Not Unusual No One Saw Hassani Campbell's Disappearance

Created by Brian Shields on 8/12/2009 6:45:00 PM

OAKLAND (KRON) -- Oakland police say there's no evidence five-year old Hassani Campbell's disappearance is the result of any kind of domestic dispute.

KRON 4's Mark Jones talked with a neighbor who says he was home at the time the child vanished from behind the "Shuz of Rockridge" shoe store on College Avenue.  The neighbor says he didn't see or hear anything.

Police say it's not that unusual to have no witnesses to this kind of incident.

"We have had cases before in the past, not just in Oakland but in other jurisdictions, where abductions have occurred and no one saw it even in very populated areas," Oakland Police Sgt. Raymond Backman told KRON 4's Mark Jones.

Police and the FBI have searched the home of Hassani's guardians but insist they are not targeting Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell.

"We have not identified any suspects at this point," Sgt. Backman said. "The foster parents are cooperating in the investigation."

"Have you talked to the biological mother?" Mark asked.

"We've identified the biological parents and I believe we have spoken to all of them," Sgt. Backman said.

Backman says the relatives are in San Francisco but there's no evidence this is the result of a domestic dispute.

Homicide Detectives Working On Missing 5-Year-Old Case

Updated: 10:29 pm PDT August 12, 2009

OAKLAND, Calif. -- A source told KTVU Wednesday night that homicide detectives have been brought into the investigation of five-year-old Hassani Campbell’s disappearance Monday afternoon.

Wednesday night, six Oakland police homicide detectives and other uniformed officers canvassed the area where the boy with cerebral palsy was last seen according to his foster father, 38-year-old Louis Ross.

Ross reportedly left Hassani standing beside his car in a driveway behind the College Avenue shoe store that Hassani’s foster mother Jennifer Campbell manages.

Ross said he took the boy's 18-month-old sister with him as he went inside the store to drop her off. When he returned to the car just minutes later to get the boy, he was gone.

Prominent Oakland attorney John Burris told KTVU by phone Wednesday evening that the couple consulted with him the day before.

They were initially dismayed, explained Burris. They were trying to handle the emotions of not having the child, but then at the same time police was targeting their house.

Burris described the couple as being surprised by the focus of the investigation as law enforcement conducted an extensive search of their Fremont home Tuesday.

Burris said Ross agreed to take a polygraph test scheduled for sometime Wednesday, while Campbell would not take the take one because of concerns that the test could affect her pregnancy.

"He was more than willing to take a polygraph, but I did advise him that taking the polygraph is not necessarily foolproof," said Burris. "It is not uncommon to have a false negative."

More than 48 hours have passed since the little boy disappeared.

Foster father: Hasanni has no leg braces
Thursday, August 13, 2009 | 1:33 AM

OAKLAND, CA (KGO) -- Family members of a missing disabled Fremont boy are hoping someone can help find him. Police say 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell was last seen in Oakland two days ago. He has cerebral palsy, but family members say he doesn't have leg braces on the outside of his pants.

The search for Hasanni was underway in the Rockridge area for the second day in a row. Wednesday evening, detectives were handing flyers out to people in the neighborhood hoping to find someone who saw something. So far, the last person to see Hasanni was his foster father.

Louis Ross, the foster father of the missing 5-year-old boy, spoke to ABC7 Wednesday night and said a critical description of his son is wrong. He says Hasanni does not wear metal leg braces on the outside of his pants.

"So that story being put out there... think about the time that was lost. People could be looking at our son and not realizing it was him because the key discriminator was metal leg braces," said Ross.

Both Hasanni's aunt and Ross are frustrated about not having any time to organize a search for Hasanni. They say they are too busy cooperating with police -- talking to them for 12 hours the first night, and 17 hours the next.

48 hours after Hasanni went missing the search for him continues. Search teams canvassed the Fremont neighborhood where Hasanni lives with his aunt Jennifer Campbell and her fiancé. Dogs searched a park near their house for the little boy's scent but investigators called off the search when they came up empty handed.

Oakland Police Sgt. Ray Blackman told ABC7 Wednesday that they did not have any solid leads or suspects.

Louis Ross told police he left Hasanni alone in his car parked behind the Rockridge neighborhood shoe store where Hasanni's aunt works. He went inside briefly to drop Hasanni's sister off. When he returned to the car Hasanni was gone.

Authorities towed the car. Police and FBI agents have searched the couple's Fremont home and the neighborhood surrounding the shoe store but some family members question the Ross's story.

"It appears somewhat strange and I don't know. So, I don't really want to speculate," said Hassani's godmother Regina Douglas.

The family is pleading for the boy's safe return.

"We're pleading and appealing to their sensibilities, to their conscience, to return this innocent little boy to his family," Douglas told ABC7.

Police say the couple is cooperating with the investigation but they will not say whether they have taken a polygraph test. Investigators plan to search the Rockridge area for a second day in a row hoping for new leads.

"Primarily, this is a missing person's case. But, we would be neglecting in our duties if we discounted that foul play may have occurred," said Ray.

Jennifer Campbell's sister told ABC7 Wednesday that Jennifer is five-months pregnant and devastated by what has happened to her family. The family that is worried and waiting for Hasanni to come home, is now also very concerned about his foster mother's well-being.

It looks like it just wasn't  just between family members deciding on  taking in Hassani to care for him.  There was some legal intervention in 2005.  http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/08/12/MN2U197IUU.DTL

Grandmother's account

Campbell's mother, Pamela Clark, 62, of San Francisco said she doubted Ross or Campbell were responsible for Hasanni's disappearance. Ross, she said, is "a very professional man. He has a good job, he is very hardworking, a good provider."

Clark added, "I don't think the family's involved at all."

Campbell became Hasanni's legal guardian after her sister, 25-year-old Shemika Campbell of San Francisco, could not take care of him, relatives said.

Clark said Shemika Campbell is "just devastated" by the boy's disappearance.

Court records show that San Francisco officials sued Shemika Campbell and Hasanni's father, Ronald Hughes, starting in 2005, claiming they were unable to support Hasanni.

The actions, one against Hughes and the other against Campbell, were apparently resolved last year with a default judgment entered on behalf of the city. They could not be reached for comment.

I guess I was under the impression family was just helping out, and that there hadn't been anything legal so far, except  there was mention of plans for the children to be adopted in the future.  But I realize now, the children would need to be fostered legally, in order for the caretakers to receive any monies for their care and especially for Hassani's medical expenses.  Providing a stable home for a child would just be the start of care. 

I pray little Hassani can be found soon.
