A 5-year-old child with cerebral palsy, Hasanni Campbell, has been missing since August 10th.
HAYWARD — The foster father of a missing 5-year-old boy was interviewed for about an hour Friday by Oakland police homicide investigators who brought him to a Hayward auto wrecking yard where he took the boy before the child vanished, authorities said.
Louis Ross agreed to accompany Sgt. Gus Galindo to the Pick Your Part wrecking yard on Winton Avenue, where Ross took Hasanni Campbell and the boy’s 1-year-old sister Monday afternoon, hours before the boy disappeared, said John Burris, a lawyer Ross is consulting.
On Monday night, Ross reported the boy had vanished from outside a shoe store on College Avenue in Oakland where Ross’ fiancee, Jennifer Campbell, was working. Ross said he had briefly left the boy outside while he went around to the front of the store.

Louis Ross, 38, and Jennifer Campbell, 30, have been arrested and are being held on suspicion of murder, authorities confirmed, all but dashing any hope of finding the boy alive.
“This is a not a missing persons case any more,” Officer Jeff Thomason, Oakland police spokesman, said Friday evening. “This is a homicide investigation, and we are talking to the people responsible.”
