Roland Dow, Jessica Linscott Remain on the Run

The couple allegedly inflicted horrific injuries on the woman's 3-year-old son, who was treated at Exeter Hospital.

A New Hampshire mother and her boyfriend accused of inflicting horrific injuries on the woman's 3-year-old son continued to avoid capture Wednesday.

Jessica Linscott, 23, and Roland Dow, 27, both of Plaistow, are the target of manhunt stretching from New Hampshire to Massachusetts. Police said Dow hit the child in the head and burned his wrist and fingers. He was charged with assault and several counts of child endangerment. Linscott was also charged with several counts of child endangerment.

Police said they discovered the boy's injuries after he was treated at Exeter Hospital last week.

Rockingham County Attorney Jim Reams demanded the pair turn themselves in.

"No matter where you go, (police) are going to find you," Reams said at a news conference at Rockingham County Superior Court in Brentwood Wednesday. "Surrender yourselves."

Reams said the pair are likely traveling in a car and may have people helping them avoid capture. He said he has no reason to believe Dow is holding Linscott against her will.

Police said the pair may have been seen in Swampscott, Mass. Tuesday.

The boy is currently in stable condition, Reams said.

Anyone with information on the couple's whereabouts is asked to call Plaistow police at 603-382-6816.
