Hassani Campbell, 5, has been missing since Monday afternoon when he was last seen in his foster father's car outside. Campbell has cerebral palsy and wears braces on his legs to help him move. (Courtesy Oakland Police Department)On Monday, 5-year-old Hassani Campbell disappeared from an unlocked car belonging to his aunt’s boyfriend.

Hassani was last seen with his aunt, Jennifer Campbell’s fiancé, Louis Ross, 38, who is the boy's caretaker. Ross said he left Hassani sitting in his unlocked BMW, parked outside a shoe store, Shuz of Rockridge, where the boy’s aunt works. The couple aslo care for Hassani’s 1-year-old sister.

Ross told police he went to unlock the shoe store to allow Hassani to enter the store more easily. He said the boy was gone when he returned to the car.

On Wednesday, police, the FBI and search and rescue dogs searched the Oakland shoe store and Hassani’s Roxie Terrace home in Fremont, Calif., where they collected bags of evidence.

The boy’s godmother told the media she knew of no problems in the family and does not believe Hassani’s foster parents—his aunt and her fiancé—had anything to do with his disappearance.

Hassani’s sister has been taken into the custody of Child Protective Services while the investigation is underway.

Hassani suffers from cerebral palsy and wears braces; therefore, authorities believe he could not have walked away from the vehicle on his own.

Hassani is African American with brown hair and brown eyes and was wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray pants when he was last seen. His leg braces are decorated with a Spiderman design.

There is no way he would be able to walk away fron the car himself. If he is wearing splints he would need either a walker or wheelchair to get around. There is something not right about this case.

NEW YORK (CBS) “The longer he’s out there and not found, it doesn’t look good,” Louis Ross says, choking up, in an interview about his missing foster son, 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell.

Campbell disappeared Aug. 10 in Oakland, Calif. when Ross left him in standing near the family car in the parking lot behind the shoe store where his fiancée, Campbell’s biological aunt and foster mom, Jennifer Campbell works. Upon seeing that their son had disappeared Ross and Campbell called 911 and began frantically searching.

“Hasanni does not wander away,” Ross told CBS 5 San Francisco.

How can Ross be so sure?

Hasanni was born with Cerebral Palsy, a type of permanent disorder that inhibits development of movement and posture, i.e., he had trouble walking, and according to Ross, could do so with concentration.

Contrary to early reports that described him wearing metal braces on his legs, Ross told reporters he wears plastic braces on his feet, which would not be visible over his clothes. He also said that if his son’s braces were removed he would still be able to walk, but would be looking down at the ground in focus.

Hasanni was left alone for “about five minutes, probably less,” Ross said in the same interview.

When asked what he think did happen in those five minutes, Ross tears up: “as a father, those are thoughts you don’t want to entertain.”

Jeff Thomason says Ross is mostly likely correct in his assumption that Hassani did not walk away: “anything’s possible but it’s not likely…right now no witnesses saw Hassani walking away from that area.”

The FBI has joined the search, along with several other local agencies. On the day of his disappearance a massive search was launched, including the use of a California Highway Patrol airplane and the K-9 unit. In the past eight days they have gone door-to-door in parts of Oakland and searched numerous locations, including a regional park and his foster parents’ home in Freemont.


(Oakland Police Department)Hassani Campbell, five, disappeared on Aug. 10 when his foster father left him in a parking lot for a mere five minutes.

The police have only received around 50 tips, which Thomason told reporters is an unusually low number for a week-old missing child case.

“We definitely need the public’s help,” Thomason said to CBS 5.

A $10,000 reward was offered Monday by Oakland Police and Crime Stoppers for information leading to the whereabouts of the boy.

“This is a continuous investigation that will be conducted day and night,” Officer Seth Neri said in a press conference.

The Oakland PD has been in touch with the biological mother, who lives in San Francisco, and told Crimesider that she is not a person of interest at this point.

Hasanni was removed from his 25-year-old mother’s home because she had physically abused him. Shemika Campbell, who also has Cerebral Palsy, says she thinks someone kidnapped him. In an exclusive interview with CBS 5 she says, “I always had a feeling that he would be gone from me one day.”

Hassani Campbell






Court documents released Thursday indicate the foster father of missing 5-year-old Hassani Campbell sent a text message just days before the boy disappeared, threatening to the leave him alone at the Bay Area Rapid Transit station.

KTVU reports that the text message was found on Louis Ross’ phone during a search by law enforcement of the family home. The text message was sent from Ross to Hassani’s aunt, Jennifer Campbell and said, “This is [expletive] over. I will watch [Hassani’s sister] but he will be on the BART…”

Officers also said that Ross, 38, had concerns about caring for a developmentally disabled child.

Authorities also confirmed to KTVU that Ross failed an FBI polygraph test he was administered on Aug. 13. To see video of Ross on Nancy Grace, click here.

On Aug. 10, the day Hassani disappeared, Ross claims he left Hassani standing outside his BMW for two to five minutes. He went to open the front door of the store where the boy’s aunt, Jennifer Campbell, 33, works to ask her to open the back door so Hassani could enter with ease. Hassani suffers from cerebral palsy, and wears small white braces on his ankles.

Reports also indicate that on morning of Aug. 10, two employees at an auto salvage yard in Hayward, Calif. saw Hassani and Ross in the BMW.

The day before Ross was given the lie detector test the home where Hassani, his younger sister, and aunt live with Ross was searched. According to the warrant, police searched for a sword of cutting instrument and biological evidence related to Hassani.

Items taken during the search include four fingerprints taken from Ross’ car, one pair of latex gloves, and eight DNA swabs.

According to Jeff Thomason with the Oakland Police, Hassani’s disappearance is being treated as a missing person’s case, but as time passes, the chances of finding him alive get slimmer. Thomason noted there is no evidence a crime has been committed.

Hassani is African American with brown hair and brown eyes and was wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray pants when he was last seen. Anyone with information about Hassani should call the Oakland Police Department at 510-238-3641 or Crime Stoppers at 510-777-8572 or 510-777-3211. There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to Hassani’s whereabouts.

Rally planned for Hasanni Campbell; foster parents reported to have moved

February 5, 2010 – 11:37 am
| Filed Under: Crime, Front, Hasanni Campbell, Neighborhoods, People, Rockridge, Safety, Topics | Oakland North has created a timeline of the first six months of the Hasanni Campbell investigation that is available here.

The homicide investigation into the disappearance of Fremont boy Hasanni Campbell continues amid reports that his foster parents have left the area. On Tuesday, The Oakland Tribune reported that Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell had moved out of their Fremont rental home a month ago, and that Ross may be in Arizona. The article stated that Jennifer Campbell’s mother, Pamela Clark, does not know where she is.

John Burris, the Oakland attorney who had been advising the couple, said he was unaware they have allegedly left the area. “I know nothing,” he said. “I didn’t know they were gone.”

Press spokesman Officer Jeffrey Thomason of the Oakland Police Department could not comment on what impact the departure could have on police proceedings because “the case is still under investigation,” he said.

Hasanni Campbell, who has cerebral palsy, has been missing since August 10, 2009. Ross claimed Hasanni went missing when he left the boy in a car behind Shuz, a Rockridge shoe store on College Avenue, where Jennifer Campbell worked. So far, the OPD has released no evidence linking the boy to that location. The couple was arrested on suspicion of murder Aug. 28, but was released when prosecutors declined to file charges against them.

The Citizens for the Lost Society, a local group that helps search for missing people, is planning a rally in front of the Oakland Police Department on February 10, the six-month anniversary of Campbell’s disappearance. Sheri-Lyn Miller, a San Leandro print-shop owner, helped found the group after she began donating t-shirts and flyers to help find missing persons. Miller estimates the rally will draw a crowd of 100 to 150 people, including city council members and supporters of Oscar Grant, the Hayward man shot and killed by a BART police officer on January 1, 2009.

Participants are invited to come make signs for the rally at Miller’s San Leandro print shop on Saturday, February 6 between 12 and 6 p.m.

Miller has not had contact with either Ross or Jennifer Campbell “since Louis Ross was released from jail about four months ago,” she said. “They should be looking for him. They haven’t been.”

Even though the OPD classified the case as a homicide, rather than a missing persons case, back in August, Miller still encourages people to look for the boy, who would now be six years old. “He was a ward of the state,” said Miller. “He is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone with a car should have a flyer for him taped in their window.”

The Oakland Police Department Crime Stoppers reward for finding Campbell is $75,000. Anyone with information regarding the case can call the Oakland Police Department at (510) 777-8572 or (510) 777-3211.

Hasanni Campbell's Foster Mom Won't Face Charges

Post  Guest on Fri 9 Apr - 23:25

Sep 1, 2009 12:14 am

Jennifer Campbell and Louis Ross.

The foster mother of a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy won't face criminal charges after prosecutors decided Monday that there wasn't enough evidence to proceed with her case.

Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said 33-year-old Jennifer Campbell would not be charged in the disappearance of Hasanni Campbell, who is also her biological nephew.

Rogers indicated that Campbell was being released from custody because there was insufficient evidence at this time to charge her as an accessory in the murder of the boy, whose body hasn't been found.

But Rogers added that the district attorney's office was still deciding whether to charge her fiance, 38-year-old Louis Ross, who remains held on suspicion of murder.

He also emphasized that the investigation into the boy's disappearance was continuing.

Ross reported the boy missing Aug. 10, saying he vanished after being left alone in a car parked at the back entrance of an Oakland shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue, where Campbell works.

Police arrested Ross and Campbell on Friday, nearly three weeks after Hasanni disappeared.

"This is not a missing persons case anymore. This is a homicide investigation," Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason had said late Friday outside police headquarters in downtown Oakland. "We do believe Hasanni Campbell is dead."

Thomason on Friday would not say what led to the couple's arrests or what had led police to conclude that the boy was dead. He was not available for comment Monday.

An attorney who has consulted with the foster parents said Monday that he was "glad" that no charges were being filed against Campbell.

Oakland lawyer John Burris said he was not surprised because he believed "there was no factual basis for her to be arrested."

Burris said being arrested was traumatic for Campbell, who is six months pregnant, and caused her "a great deal of emotional harm."

Burris said he thinks that that Oakland police arrested Campbell as "a tactic to intimidate her to talk" and disclose incriminating evidence against Ross.

"She hadn't done anything wrong but the police didn't accept that," he said.

Burris indicated that he has found a lawyer to represent Ross in the event charges are filed against him.

After the boy's disappearance, his foster parents made tearful public pleas for his safe return that included vigils outside the shoe store and dozens of volunteers handing out fliers with Hasanni's face and holding a car wash to add to a $10,000 reward.

Hasanni is black, 3 feet tall, weighs 30 pounds and was last seen wearing a gray sweat shirt and gray pants. He also wears arches on his legs to help him walk.
