Police sought the public's help Monday in finding a 13-month-old boy believed to have been abducted by his mother.

Bryan Bazan was taken from his father Wednesday night while his mother, 19-year-old Wendy Cervantes, was visiting him, officials said.

His father, Elim Bazan, has sole custody of the child and allowed the visitation with the understanding that Cervantes, who lives in the Van Nuys area, would return the boy by 6 a.m. Saturday.

Relatives told investigators they believe Cervantes fled to Mexico with her son because she has family in Guadalajara.
