"We hope this award will lead to information on the whereabouts of Hasanni Campbell," Newsom said in a statement. "If you have any leads, please contact the Oakland Police Department."
Ross, 38, and Campbell, 30, were arrested last week and held for several days in jail while the Alameda County District Attorney's Office reviewed the case. Prosecutors did not file criminal charges against them, and both were released this week...

Louis Ross is a con artist turned murderer. The body of that poor disabled boy is probably in the water and Ross is cruel enough to have abandoned him or killed him. He made several false statements to the police, committed perjury and is guilty of obstruction of justice. In less than 9 months, he managed to turn into a sadistic child murderer. The body won't be found for a long time like in the Scott Peterson case and the Oakland D>A's office is weak and not as competent as the NY one
