Press Release By:
The Norman Police Department is asking for the public’s help to locate a woman and child who are believed to be in immediate danger following a reported kidnapping and abduction. At approximately 7:40 a.m., officers were dispatched to a report of a disturbance in the 1100 block of Oak Tree Avenue. Witnesses reported that 26-year-old Joseph Cross was engaged in a verbal dispute with his girlfriend, 41-year-old Angela Rhea, when he grabbed her, put his hand over her mouth, and forced her into his vehicle. Already inside the vehicle was his one-year-old child Jonah Fisher.
Due to information gained during the investigation, Norman police believe that both Angela Rhea and Jonah Fisher could be in immediate danger.
Joseph Cross was driving a 2013 black, four-door Toyota Camry bearing the Oklahoma license plate of 149KIG at the time of the incident. The vehicle has black spray painted rims, a dent in the passenger side bumper, and possibly a crack in the front windshield on the passenger side.
Angela Rhea (DOB: 12-9-1975) is described as a white female with brown hair.
Joseph Cross (DOB: 12-4-1990) is described as a white male with blonde hair.
Jonah Fisher (DOB: 7-16-2015) is described a white male with blonde hair.
