Authorities began searching for Hassani Campbell Monday evening after Ross reported to police that the boy went missing while he dropped relatives off in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood, a busy shopping district.
However, there haven't been any witnesses who saw the boy there that day, police said. Authorities said the last time a witness saw the boy at the store was Aug. 6.
The boy's 1-year-old sister was taken into protective custody Tuesday.
Ross said he left the boy, who wears leg braces and has trouble getting around, outside his newer-model BMW in the back parking lot of Shuz, a shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue, about 4:15 p.m. He said he was there to drop the boy's sister off with Jennifer Campbell, who reportedly manages the store.
When Ross returned, he said the boy was gone, police said. Authorities confiscated the BMW for evidence.
