A 20-year-old woman who fled with her boyfriend’s one-year-old son and was the subject of an Orange County AMBER alert, has been located and arrested.
According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Kira Fae Lawson was arrested on Sunday after allegedly kidnapping her boyfriend’s son, one-year-old Marcus Lyles, on Saturday, May 7, just before midnight.
Authorities say that Lyles was in Lawson’s car when she drove off without his father’s permission. An Amber Alert was issued on Sunday evening and within two hours, a tip was called in about the 2011 Hyundai Sonata that Lawson was driving. The baby was returned to his father and Lawson is currently in police custody.
