HUDSON, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A Pasco County toddler who went missing has been found safe and unharmed after his mother’s live-in boyfriend reportedly threaten to harm him.

Deputies believed that Michael Diaz took 2-year-old Robert Kenneth Vredeveld from his Hudson home early Sunday after an alleged domestic assault that sent the child’s mother to the hospital.

Diaz, who has a criminal history in Pasco County, lives with the boy and his 27-year-old pregnant mother on the 16000 block of Ramona Lane in Hudson.

Although the child was found unharmed authorities are still looking for him in connection with the alleged assault of the mother.

Diaz is not the father of Vredeveld.

Anyone with information on Michael Diaz and his whereabouts is asked to call the Pasco Sheriff’s Office at (727) 844-7711.
