Parents of missing Crystal Lake boy ‘AJ’ Freund have stopped cooperating, cops say; father leaves home with police – Chicago Tribune

As Crystal Lake police continued to search for 5-year-old Andrew “AJ” Freund two days after he was reported missing, authorities say the boy’s parents have stopped cooperating with them.

Investigators are following up on “hundreds of tips,’’ Crystal Lake police Chief Jim Black said Saturday. “This is still an ongoing investigation,’’ Black said.

Black said no arrests have been made, but the father, also named Andrew Freund, left the home about 1 p.m. Saturday with plainclothes police officers. He was not in handcuffs when he entered a black unmarked police car with them.

Officers inside the police station about 1:15 p.m. declined to say why Freund was there or if he was under arrest.
