DETROIT, Mich. – Surveillance video from a market in Detroit shows a man abducting a 13-year-old boy, police say.

There is still an active AMBER Alert for Deontae Mitchell, who is believed to have been kidnapped from Detroit’s east side. The video shows the entire incident.

Deontae is about 4 feet 11 inches tall, and weighs about 86 pounds. He has hazel eyes and was last seen wearing a lime green Nautica shirt with gray jogging pants and black gym shoes.

Deontae’s cousin says Deontae went missing around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 31. They were on their bicycles at Nino’s Market on Warren Avenue on the city’s east site. The cousin told police a drunk man dropped some money while urinating outside the market, and that Deontae picked it up and they both began to ride away on their bikes.

A short time later, police say the cousin heard Deontae had been grabbed by a black male in a 2002 Chevy Impala and was being held against his will.

Authorities describe the suspect as being 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 175 lbs. He is said to be around 40 years old. His 2002 Chevy Impala is also said to have a loud muffler.

The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous. He may be carrying a .22 caliber pistol.
