Original 12:45pm: (Lawrenceville, Georgia)  The Gwinnett County Police Department needs the public’s help in locating a missing child.  Seven-year old, Quamaine Finch is believed to be with Ricardo Medy (age 42). 

Quamaine Finch’s mother was taken into custody in Fulton County last week for unknown charges.  The child was initially left in the care of her boyfriend, Ricardo Medy (age 42, Lawrenceville).  Since that time, the Division of Family and Children’s Services (DFCS) was awarded custody of Quamaine. 

On Tuesday, November 27, at around 7:30pm, officers assigned to the East Precinct, along with a member of DFCS, visited the home of Ricardo (1273 Park Hollow Lane, unincorporated Lawrenceville).  Ricardo refused to answer the door for the officers.  Through a phone conversation, he said that the child was not at the home.  He told the officers that Quamaine was with his biological father at an unknown location.

The case was ultimately assigned to a detective in the Special Victims Unit.  That detective secured an arrest warrant for Ricardo Medy.  He has been charged with Interference with Custody. 

Ricardo has previous ties to New Jersey, Florida, and Georgia. 

At this time, we do not know the whereabouts of Quamaine or Ricardo.  If anyone knows their locations, please contact GCPD detectives at 770-513-5300.  To remain anonymous, tipsters should contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or visit www.crimestoppersatlanta.org.  Crime Stoppers tipsters can receive up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.  Case Number:  18-110731
