Amber Alert Issued for Twins in Stolen Car, 1 Found in Airport Parking Lot 80 Miles Away

An Amber Alert in Ohio has police searching for a 5-month-old baby boy — one of a set of twins who were inside a car that was stolen outside a pizza restaurant Monday night in Columbus.

Police named Nalah Jackson, 24, as a person of interest in the case, describing her as 5 feet 7 inches tall and 159 pounds with brown hair and eyes. She was last seen wearing a dark-colored hoodie.

One of the missing twins was found at Dayton International Airport, nearly 80 miles away from Columbus, early Tuesday morning, Columbus Police said, but investigators did not provide details on the discovery.

Columbus police said that Dayton police were searching the area for Jackson, the missing twin, and the stolen car — a black, 2010 Honda Accord with a missing front bumper, a torn Ohio temporary tag on the back, and a bumper sticker that said “West Side City Toys.”

WCPO, however, reported that the baby who was found was in the back seat of the missing car, located in the parking lot at the airport. Linda Hughes with Airport Public Relations said the child was found in the parking lot and handed over to police but did not say anything about a vehicle, WHIO reported.

WHIO also reported that at least two county dispatchers had reported the stolen car appeared to have been in an accident, with “heavy left side damage” and “purple paint transfer.”

Investigators have also not said how or if Jackson is connected with the mother and her twins or how they concluded she was a person of interest.

The children were identified as Kyair and Kason Thomass, who were wearing brown outfits. Police have not said which of the boys was found.
