My girlfriend is hiding with my son since she has been arrested

My girlfriend is hiding with my son since she has been arrested and immediately released by the police as her I-94 has expired. I do not have anymore news, except the place she stays currently but I do not have any contact with her. She might be upset because I have reported her illegal status in the US. What should I really do now to get in touch with my son as she does not answer to my calls. I am abroad. The family with which she stays does not also reply to my calls. They are being an obstacle between us. Thanks for your help.
