DEL CITY, Okla. (KFOR) – Authorities in Del City are searching for a missing child.

Around 8 a.m. on Oct. 7, Del City police officers were called to a possible child abduction in the 4600 block of Tinker Diagonal.

When police arrived at the scene, the learned there was a court order prohibiting the child’s biological mother from having any physical contact.

Officials say the child was walking to a bus stop when the child’s biological mother, Robin Zeigler, pulled up in a white Dodge pickup truck and forced him into the vehicle.

“The child, at 7 years old, probably doesn’t even understand what’s going on. He probably doesn’t even understand that he’s not supposed to be with mom,” said Maj. Bradley Rule with the Del City Police Department. “We don’t believe the child’s in any imminent danger of harm. The guardianship was given to the family member for a reason and so legally we have to honor that and this becomes a criminal matter violating a judge’s order.”

At this point, officials are searching for 7-year-old Auston Zeigler and 34-year-old Robin Zeigler.

Rule said he has empathy for Robin Zeigler wanting to see her son.

“I absolutely can empathize with that. I have children myself and would hate to be away from them, but the judge has given an order and judges give those orders for a reason,” Rule said.

If you have any information on their whereabouts, call the Del City Police Department.
