A Levi’s Call alert was issued early Friday for a 4-year-old boy discovered missing Thursday after his mother was found severely beaten and unconscious inside the family’s Roswell apartment.

And police have identified the boy’s father as a suspect in the incident.

Officers were called around 4:30 p.m. to the home at 260 Old Holcomb Bridge Way, according to Roswell police.

The woman’s sister found her unconscious after she hadn’t heard from her and showed up at the home, police spokeswoman Officer Lisa Holland said.

“She has been beaten and strangled and found unresponsive,” Officer Holland said. “It looks like she had been there for hours.”

The woman, whose name was not released, was transported to the hospital in critical condition, Officer Holland said. She was still unconscious late Friday morning.

Police were unable to locate the woman’s 4-year-old son, Jesus Dominguez, she said. The couple’s other two children, a 10-year-old boy and 5-year-old girl, were still at school.

Jesus, who is between 2 and a half feet and 3 feet tall, weighs between 35 and 40 pounds, and has short black hair and brown eyes. And police believe he may be in danger.

“If he hurts the mother, he could hurt the child,” Officer Holland said.

His father, Mr. Carlos Alberto Dominguez, is between 6 feet and 6 feet, 2 inches with a thin build, short black hair and brown eyes, according to police. He is in his early 30s.

Investigators don’t believe Mr. Dominguez owns a vehicle and aren’t sure where he may be.

Early Friday, alerts about the missing boy were posted on message boards over metro Atlanta interstates and the GBI and rangers from the state Department of Natural Resources joined in the search for the child.

Anyone with information regarding the child’s whereabouts is asked to call 911.
