Former „American Idol“ contestant Syesha Mercado asks for help finding her 15-month-old son. Mercado, the third-place finisher in the show`s seventh season, is seeking help to find her son Amen`Ra after he was „legally kidnapped.“ Syesha Mercado allegedly forcibly abducted her two young children. Five months after the singer`s 34-year-old eldest son, Amen`Ra, was „legally abducted“ for 15 months, according to her Instagram bio, her 10-day-old newborn daughter has also been removed from her care. The couple called Amen`Ra`s removal from custody a „legal abduction“ and accused CPS of failing to properly inform her of her son`s well-being. She says that „we called the hospital every day and there were days when they couldn`t find our sun.“ The move sparked outrage on social media. One Twitter user wrote: „Our government has a long history of abducting children from minorities and the poor. This is devastating for parents and causes serious problems in children. Mercado gave birth to a baby girl in the middle of her legal battle for custody of her son, and now her daughter has also been abducted by the authorities. „Amen`Ra had just been weaned from my chest and had never been left in the care of ANYONE since birth,“ she continued in her message about her son`s „medical abduction incident.“ „Even when I was in the hospital with him, I never left him alone. They permanently banished us from the hospital and did not allow any relatives to be with him while he was with strangers in that cold hospital room.

„To this day, he has doctor`s appointments that the state plans in this hospital, but we can`t attend because we are banned forever.“ „We have hired a lawyer and launched a campaign to help us cope with the increase in our legal fees, the expenses necessary for medical specialists and team members who will help us fight back,“ she wrote. She added that it will be difficult to adopt the U.S. health care system. „To stand up against this system and its way of thinking [and] colonial laws, we need your support.“ On Tuesday, the 34-year-old mother shared an Instagram video revealing that child protection services took her son on March 11 under false allegations and „racist“ interrogations. She also revealed that she had set up a GoFundMe to help pay her legal fees and raise awareness about „the legalized abduction of black babies by cps.“ Chapter 39 of the Laws of Florida (F.S.) requires that any person, including but not limited to law enforcement, education professionals, and health professionals, who has experience in recognizing the signs of child abuse, neglect, or abandonment, and who knows or has reason to believe that a child is being abused, neglected or abandoned by a parent; The legal guardian, caregiver, or other person responsible for the child`s well-being must immediately report such knowledge or suspicion to the Florida Department of Children and Families Florida Abuse Hotline. MANATEE County, Florida „American Idol“ star Syesha Mercado and her partner Tyron Deneer held a press conference this week to announce legal action plans against Manatee County authorities who abducted their two children, claiming their son was extremely malnourished. According to GoFundMe, which raised more than $13,000, Mercado went to the hospital to get fluids from his son. She needed the fluids as he transitioned from prolonged breastfeeding to the bottle feeding method. She claims that her son was „forcibly and lawfully abducted“ by CPS by her and her partner. A statement from the couple`s lawyer said: „Two removals of children from disproportionate violence from a loving home inflicted unimaginable trauma on Syesha and her family. Syesha and Tyron are ready to fight the discrimination and oppression inflicted on them by the justice system with their lawyers.â In August, Mercado and Deneer temporarily lost custody of their newborn daughter Ast, now 2 months old.
