Police spokesman Detective Donny Moses says the boy was found at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday in an abandoned home in southwest Baltimore. Moses says police have one suspect in custody but did not have the person's name.

Police said witnesses reported seeing 8-year-old Darrick Charles Brown Jr. grabbed Monday night while walking on the street in his southwest Baltimore neighborhood with a friend. He was said to have been put in the trunk of a newer model, light green Ford Taurus with Maryland tags.

Update from police: Baltimore Homicide detectives arrested 20 year-old Nathaniel Booker in connection with the abduction of 8 year-old Darrick Brown. Booker has been charged with the following: kidnapping, kidnapping a child under the age of 16, reckless endangerment, 1st and 2nd degree assault, false imprisonment, and extortion.

Detectives are still looking for Raheem Taylor and are hoping anyone with information regarding his whereabouts will call them at 410-396-2100
