INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 4, 2015) – After months of no new developments in the case of missing baby Delano Wilson, prosecutors are ready to file a murder charge against his father, Willie Wilson.

Wilson was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon.

Missing Persons detectives and the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office have prepared a probable cause affidavit to charge Wilson despite the absence of a body. Such a case would be based on circumstantial evidence, such as inconsistent statements from Wilson, cooperation from another witness or evidence seized during the search.

Indianapolis Metropolitan police investigated the disappearance of the 1-month-old child, which was reported on Wednesday, August 27, 2014. The baby’s father told police a man and a woman approached him in an alley in the 1400 block of Henry Street, robbed him, pistol-whipped him and then took the baby. The case triggered an Amber Alert.

A day after Delano disappeared, his mother, Taniasha Perkins, spoke to the media andmade an impassioned plea for her son’s safe return. Police also released audio from Wilson’s 911 call in which he said, “All I want is my son. I am begging, please search. I love my son.”

The Amber Alert was cancelled on August 29 at the request of IMPD.

The search for baby Delano went on for several weeks, although police never found him. On Sept. 1, police served a search warrant at the home of the boy’s parents. Police questioned Perkins at the home and eventually took her away in a police car. She was not handcuffed.
