On Friday afternoon, the child's foster father, Louis Ross, walked out of his Fremont home and into the waiting car of Oakland Police detectives.

According to Ross' advisor, attorney John Burris, detectives drove Ross around for about an hour. Earlier this week Ross told ABC7 News he spent nearly 30 hours to detectives.

"I have not spoken to the media up until this point, not because we were shying or hiding, we were with police and the FBI giving them all of the information. First day alone we were with them for 17 hours straight," Ross told ABC7 News exclusively on Wednesday night.

Ross told police he left Hassani standing near an Oakland shoe store for a few minutes on Monday afternoon, and that the boy disappeared.

Ross was not taken to Oakland Police headquarters, rather detectives simply drove him around for about an hour. They want him to retrace his steps the morning the child disappeared.

In the meantime, Alameda County Search and Rescue will conduct a wide scale search for Hassani on Monday.

"We've been asked to coordinate a search and rescue effort for Saturday for the Oakland Police Department and it entails us calling other search and rescuers from other allied agencies as well as our own, and come Saturday wherever the Oakland Police Department wants us we will search those areas," said Sheriff's Spokesperson J.D. Nelson.

Oakland Police has yet to announce where that search will take place.
