The incident happened at about 9:15 a.m. on Saturday when officers were dispatched to a residence in the 5900 block of Castlewood Lane to investigate a domestic violence situation.

"When the victim left to report the incident to police, Mr. Beatty left the residence with Blaze," the Colorado Police Department said in a news release. "The follow up investigation has revealed that Mr. Beatty may pose a risk to Blaze’s safety, and thus, the Colorado Springs Police Department is requesting the public’s assistance in locating him and the child."
