Isn't it implied that it's his son?

Hmmm... maybe sticking to a literal translation would be better? I don't know how much sense does it make in English to imply it.

In case you think it's worth it, please report it.

Yes, I thought it was implied in Italian that the subject of the verb belongs to the object - at least when that makes more sense than not. I'll report it.
