Danielle Caprio, the child's mother, reported her son missing at approximately 1:24 p.m. Thursday. Danielle told police she left the residence at about 12:24 p.m. and when she returned, an hour later, her son and the nanny were gone.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested Blanca Castro, 57, in Miami-Dade County in connection with the child's disappearance, police said. The boy was not with her.
"We were really able to drive home the point of the fact that it's never OK to abduct anyone's children, to kidnap someone's children. And I think that message was getting out loud and clear, " Chief Kitzerow said.
He said the child had left Palm Beach County, but he did not elaborate.
Earlier in the day police speculated that Dominic might be in the company of his grandparents.
Jupiter police said at 1 this afternoon, their detectives worked in conjunction with an attorney to ensure the boy's safe return to his mother. It's still not known who that attorney is and what the connection to Dominic is.
The chief told WPTV NewsChannel 5 that he believed this abduction was orchestrated and involved multiple people. At this point, it's not known if anyone aside from the nanny, Blanca Castro, has been taken into custody or arrested.
UPDATE: Missing juvenile, Dominic Caprio, is safe and has been reunited w/ his mother. Additional details to follow as they become available
