CNN reports that the five-month-old babies had been taken on Monday, when their mother, Wilhelmina Thomass had left them inside her car while picking up a DoorDash order as a driver. Kyair Thomass was found first, on Tuesday and Kason Thomass was later found on Thursday.
“Kason Thomass was found alive & safe in Indianapolis near a Papa John’s pizza location. The five-month-old boy is in good health & being transported to a hospital to be checked out,” the police said in a statement via Twitter.
At around 2 p.m. on Thursday, police apprehended the suspect, 24-year-old Nalah Jackson, who allegedly stole Wilhelmina’s black 2010 Honda Accord while it was still running. When the mother came out, her car was no longer there. Kyair was later found near the Dayton International Airport at around 4:15 a.m.. Kason would be found two days later in the stolen vehicle wearing the same clothes from Monday.
Jackson has been hit with two felony counts of kidnapping. She will deal with federal charges too since she traveled across state lines. Restaurant employees would later tell police that they witnessed a homeless woman leave the restaurant right after Wilhelmina walked in. It doesn’t appear that there is any sort of link between Jackson and the Thomass family.
