Mother, Boyfriend Due In Court In Missing Fitchburg Boy Case

FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts mother and her boyfriend are due in court for dangerousness hearings as police and relatives continue searching for her 5-year-old son. 

Elsa Oliver of Fitchburg is charged with reckless endangerment of a child and being an accessory after the fact. Her boyfriend, Alberto Sierra, is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a child. They’ve pleaded not guilty.

Oliver’s son, Jeremiah, was last seen by relatives in September and is feared dead. Authorities learned about the boy’s disappearance only recently.
