Four year old Fredrick McCluskey (left) was kidnapped while at daycare by his suicidal father (right) after he threatened to harm himself and the boy.

Marlboro Police are looking for a 4-year-old child who was taken from daycare by his father, who is believed to be suicidal.

Frederick McCluskey, 27, the child’s biological father, had a physical argument with the boy’s mother earlier on Friday in Marlboro, New York, located in Ulster County. The argument turned physical and he then went to the daycare center and forcibly removed the little boy.

Fredrick is described as a Caucasian adult male, 6’3” tall, blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen driving a red, 2-door 1989 Honda Civic hatchback with the New York plate FHX9276.

A NY Amber Alert was issued for the boy, who is 4’feet tall, weighing 50 pounds and was last seen wearing a red shirt and blue jeans. He has a small scar under his right eye.

Authorities believe the father could be headed to Connecticut and is asking the public for assistance in locating him. Do NOT attempt to contact him yourself, instead contact the nearest police.
