A woman accused of stealing a car with twin babies in Ohio earlier this week was arrested Thursday in Indianapolis, Indiana, after an extensive search, according to authorities.
One of the 5-month-old babies, Kason Thomass, was not with 24-year-old Nalah Jackson when police located her on an Indianapolis street Thursday afternoon, Columbus Police Chief Elaine Bryant told reporters. .
"We've been imploring anyone who might have any information — if she left the baby, if someone is in someone's house and they've never seen a baby before and suddenly there's a baby there, whatever information they can give us, regardless No matter how small or insignificant someone might think it is, it could lead us to actually locate Kason," he said.
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for his safe return.
