Kidnapped Sylvester toddler located, babysitter arrested

March 13, 2008

Sylvester -- A Sylvester toddler is back safely with his mother Thursday night after he was reported kidnapped.

His babysitter is in custody.

17-month old Jeremiah "Zell" McLoud's mother reported him missing Thursday morning.

He disappeared along with his 18-year-old babysitter and cousin Tikeya Nichole Banks Wednesday night from his Sylvester home. 

The GBI worked  with Sylvester and Albany Police and got a tip that Banks and the child were at a home in Albany.

Investigators found both of them inside a home at 315 Independence Drive in Dougherty County around 8:30 Thursday night.

Sylvester Police Captain Isaac Adams tells us that warrants were issued for Banks' arrest on the charges of kidnapping and auto theft.

She is being held in police custody while investigators try to figure out why she took off with the child.
