Police Issue BOLO for Van in Connection With Child Abuse Case

A blue minivan with New Hampshire license plates was spotted in Beverly tonight and may be used by a New Hampshire couple fleeing from authorities.

Local departments and state police are on the lookout tonight for a blue 2009 Dodge Caravan with New Hampshire license plates (2844129).

The van was seen in Beverly heading north within the past 30 minutes and police believe a New Hampshire couple wanted in a child abuse case may be using the van. Officers are requested to stop the vehicle and identify the occupants.

Jessica Linscott, 23, and her boyfriend, Roland Dow, 27, of Plaistow, N.H., are both wanted on multiple charges of assault, neglect and endangering a child in connection with severe abuse and physical injury inflicted on Linscott's three-year-old son.

The child is recovering in a New Hampshire hospital. He was originally dropped off by the couple at hospital on Nov. 14 and doctors reported he showed signs of head injuries and his body was covered with bruises and burns.

The couple then went missing and police have received tips in recent days of possible sightings of the couple around the North Shore.

I find it sickening that this "mother" would run off with this man choosing him over her own kid. Even on jail they will soon feel what that child does.

Does anyone know how tall Jessica and Roland are? They were supposedly seen in Danvers in a store. Just wondering in case someone might see them and not their car. Would be good to have the height.
