OAKLAND — A search warrant issued the day after Hasanni Campbell was reported missing shows that police were looking for a "sword or cutting instrument" and biological evidence from the 5-year-old boy in his foster parents' home. Authorities also confirmed Wednesday that Louis Ross, the boy's foster father, failed a polygraph test given by the FBI.
I suspect that Hasanni never made it to the shoe store that day.

The search warrant, issued at 5:45 a.m. Aug. 11 in Alameda County, was for the home on Roxie Terrace in Fremont, where the boy lives with his foster parents, Ross, 38, and Jennifer Campbell, 30.

The warrant was also for Ross' 2002 BMW.

Police recovered a pair of latex gloves, eight DNA swabs and four fingerprint lifts from the car but took nothing from the home, authorities confirmed Wednesday. It was unclear why investigators were looking for a sword or cutting instrument.

Hasanni was reported missing Aug. 10. Ross has said that he drove that day to Shuz of Rockridge, where Campbell works, to drop off Hasanni and his 1-year-old sister.
He said he left the boy alone in the rear driveway while he took the girl to the front of the store on College Avenue.

When he returned to the driveway a few minutes later, Hasanni was gone, Ross has told police.
None of the tips police have received have panned out. Police and volunteers have searched Oakland neighborhoods, the parklands of Coyote Hills in Fremont, and the marshland area along the Hayward shoreline, but they have not found any evidence related to his disappearance.
Family members have said they think Hasanni was abducted.

The boy is described as light-skinned African-American, 3 feet tall, weighing 40 pounds. He last was seen wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray pants. He has cerebral palsy and wears braces on his feet.

Investigators ask anyone with information on Hasanni to call 510-777-8572 or 510-777-3211. If either number does not work, call investigator Sgt. Gus Galindo at 510-238-7934.

Louis Ross killed Hasanni because he hated that poor disabled child and he disposed of the body after the murder took place in the Fremont house. Jennifer Campbell knew where he is and won't talk at least Ross left the mean aunt with their newborn baby who has monstrous parents. Jennifer destroyed the whole generation of Campbell children and is as guilty as Ross. Let her rot in LA and starve without a job. She will probably wind up on welfare and we will have to pay for that lying evil aunt. And her sister Shemika is equally sleazy and dangerous; a drug addict and violent. What a family. Poor Hassani.
