“These are Texas roads,” Ragland recalled the man saying.

The man was later identified by Ragland as Grant Williams.

In an interview with KTBS, Ragland broke down in tears at the thought of his son being in the car.

“Sorry,” he said. “He was screaming.”

The Harrison County sheriff’s office told Ragland that there’s nothing they can do until he files a police report in person. Ragland lives two hours away from the sheriff’s office, KTBS noted.
