The search continues for a baby kidnapped from a San Antonio gas station.

Police say the father of King Jay Davila pulled up next to a pump and went inside the store, leaving his door unlocked, his keys in the ignition and the baby in the backseat, San Antonio Police said.

Surveillance video then shows a woman get into the car and drive off with the baby. Another video shows the woman walking with the car seat.

Police believe that the baby’s father staged the kidnapping, but the mother says that is not true.

“They have another video of carrying the car seat. Yea. It looked like the bus stop where she is walking. There is palm trees there is palm trees,” the baby’s mother, Jasmine Gonzales, told the baby’s father, Chris Davila, on the phone while watching surveillance video.

Davila was arrested after the incident and is still in custody for child endangerment. Police say he is not cooperating.

“I am going to go crazy,” Gonzales said.

Cameras were there as Gonzales watched the San Antonio Police news conference on the incident.

“Hope that the father will start to be cooperative and the family members will help us in this, right now, they’re uncooperative,” SAPD Chief William McManus said.

“Uncooperative! How are we not being cooperative,” Gonzales said. “No, you’re not even calling us or telling us anything! I have been calling to find updates that’s bull(expletive)”

Gonzales said she was on the phone with Davila moments before the woman drove off with King Jay.

“Yeah he made a mistake. He made a mistake by leaving the baby inside the car,” Gonzales said. “We admit that that was wrong. And he freaked out and I was like ‘you know what, hang up and call the cops! And that is the first thing he said that he (expletive) did.”

Camera crews picked up what Davila was telling Gonzales during the phone call.

“It’s not right. Since day one they have been doing the same thing, not getting anywhere. Their focus is somewhere else. They just need to focus all their information on where the car was located at,” Davila said.

Police believe Davila knew the woman who took their son but both he and Gonzales deny it.

The car was found at a nearby park, but the baby was not inside. Authorities have been searching a nearby wooded area for the child.
