UPDATE: Jupiter police chief says Dominic Caprio is safe and reunited with his mother.


An Amber Alert remains in effect for a 4-year-old Jupiter child, and the police chief says his disappearance was planned and organized.

Danielle Caprio, the child's mother, reported her son, Dominic L. Caprio, 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. 

Dominic is described as a white male approximately 36 inches tall with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a gray t-shirt with dinosaurs and green shorts. He has a  small pinkish red birthmark on the back of his neck and a small scar on his lower back. 

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested Blanca Castro, 57, in Miami-Dade County in connection with the child's kidnapping, police said. The boy was not with her.

Dominic may be in the company of his grandparents, Elizabeth Caprio, 60, and 64-year-old Luis Caprio. They may be traveling in a 2013 blue BMW 740i with Florida tag CBDB47.

"A reasonable person would believe this child is in danger," Jupiter Police Chief Frank Kitzerow said.

The investigation is ongoing. The Florida Department of Children and Families is not involved in this Amber Alert, and there is no prior history of the department investigating any case concerning Dominic Caprio. 

Anyone with information regarding this incident or comes in contact with these individuals is urged to contact the Jupiter Police Department at 561-799-4447.
