A 40-year-old woman is being sought in the case of a 14-year-old who hasn’t been seen since Christmas.


According to our media partners at Newswest 9, a Midland father tells authorities 40-year-old Rebecca Menefield kidnapped their son Taraeus Dunson back on December 29.

The Midland County Sheriff's Office has issued a warrant for Menefield in reference to Interference with Child Custody. The child, Taraeus Dunson, went to Phoenix, AZ to visit his mother and the mother is now refusing to return the child to his father in Midland which is a felony.

The mom may be going by the name Tabitha and her son may be using the mother's maiden name or Roberts.

A warrant is out for her arrest.

The pair could be in Arizona, but if you spot them in the Permian Basin, be sure to call authorities.
