Authorities seek son in mom's kidnapping

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are looking for a California man they say kidnapped his elderly mother from her Ashland home in May.

Marshall McMains Goldberg, 55, allegedly took his mother, 85-year-old Doris Goldberg, without her caregiver's permission. She was living with another of her sons before the kidnapping happened.

Doris is considered "endangered," as she suffers from Alzheimer's disease and dementia, officials said.

FBI officials believe Marshall Goldberg has fled the state and they obtained a federal fugitive warrant June 30.

A Jackson County grand jury has indicted Goldberg on state charges of kidnapping, custodial interference and contempt of court. Posters of Marshall and Doris Goldberg are on the FBI's website,, and on the agency's Facebook page.

Marshall Goldberg is described as 5 feet, 9 inches tall with brown hair and blue eyes and weighing between 160 and 165 pounds. He may be wearing glasses. Doris Goldberg is 5 feet, 1 inch tall with white hair and blue eyes.

They may be in a 1996 gold Oldsmobile four-door sedan with California license plate 3SZY023.

Goldberg has connections in the Los Angeles and North Hollywood areas and in Daly City near San Francisco, FBI officials said.

Anyone with information about the pair's location should call the closest FBI field office: the Redding FBI field office at 530-223-6473 or the Portland FBI field office at 503-224-4181.
