Johnson said she contacted Haupert shortly after his mother was found wandering, but he told police he’d done nothing wrong.
He “basically said she’s a big girl and can take care of herself,” Johnson told Channel 2.
But Johnson said Haupert can't just bring someone to a foreign place, drop her off and leave her with nothing. Laree had only a train case with old pictures, one phone number, $20 and a few pair of shorts.
Saint Croix marina police told Channel 2 that Haupert lives in the U.S. Virgin Islands and is away on vacation.
His mother remains in the custody of adult protective services, police said.
