JEFFERSON Co., Ala. (WIAT) — Hours after a 4-day-old baby was abducted from his home in Fairfield, the baby has now been found safe.
“Today, we had a happy ending thanks to a lot of hard work,” said David Agee, deputy chief of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
According to Sgt. Joni Money, the JCSO received a call at 1:52 p.m. Tuesday about Kamarion Deshawn Taylor, a baby police say was taken from the 600 block of Jerry D. Coleman Street in Fairfield.
Law enforcement also sent out an alert through their app that reported the infant’s mother put him in a crib before taking a nap. When she woke up, her baby was gone.
Agee confirmed that they believe the person who abducted the baby is someone known to the family and that there is now a person of interest in custody.
By 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Kamarion was returned safe to his home in Fairfield.
The circumstances surrounding his abduction were not disclosed Tuesday night.
“We will figure out who did what and hold them responsible,” Agee said. “Right now, we are just thankful for the recovery of the child.”
