Man sought after infant taken from Lake Mary home

Police search for Roger Clinton Jones

LAKE MARY, Fla. – Police are looking for a man accused of taking a 4-month-old girl from a home in Lake Mary.

The baby was taken Monday from a home on Silver Cloud Circle, police said.

According to police, Roger Clinton Jones, 21, took the baby during a custody dispute, but the mother claims he is not the father of the child.

"They're not together and haven't been together," said Lake Mary police Captain Mike Biles.  "So the purpose of him coming to take the child is because he believes he has custody of (her)."

Jones was described as being violent with a couple of people before allegedly taking off with the child.

Investigators recovered Jones' abandoned vehicle along Interstate 4 near Matiland Boulevard.

Police said Jones had the infant for a few hours before leaving the uninjured child with family in Eatonville.
