Berlin, VT – The Vermont Department for Children and Families and Berlin Police are looking for a 7-year-old boy and his mother. Berlin Police say they were asked by DCF to serve an Emergency Custody for the child, Marshall Herring.

Police say after receiving the order the child’s mother, Jerrica Herring, refused to tell officers where the child was. Police say Herring told them she would bring her son to the police station later that evening. Police say Jerrica Herring did not report as promised and is believed to be with the child evading law enforcement. A warrant for the mother’s arrest has been issued.
