Two mothers decided to follow their instincts one day, leading them to save the life of a five-month-old boy kidnapped just before Christmas. Their mother’s instinct led them to capture the suspect and return the baby to its parents.
Mothers know best – and in one particular case, a mother’s instinct saved the life of an innocent five-month-old boy who had been abducted. Realizing how worried the boy’s parents must have been, the woman sprang into action to ensure the little boy got home safely for Christmas.
The horror story of a 24-year-old woman stealing a speeding car outside a pizzeria made headlines across the country as she took her 5-month-old twin babies to inside the car at the time. While a baby twin was found abandoned in an airport car park a day after the incident, the other baby twin was nowhere to be found.
A strange encounter
The rescue mission began when Shyann Delmar bought toys for a woman who introduced herself as “Mae” the day after the kidnapping. Shyann bought “Mae” some toys and then drove the woman to the dollar store.
However, inside the car, Shyann noticed her passenger was acting strangely. His behavior made Shyann so uncomfortable that she decided to record what was happening inside the vehicle.
By the time Shyann dropped off “Mae” at the dollar store, they had exchanged phone numbers. Even when Shyann got home, she still couldn’t get rid of the idea that something was up with the woman she had just met, but it wasn’t until the next day that she moved on. stock.
Follow a mother’s instinct
While scrolling through Facebook, Shyann came across a photo of a woman with blonde hair. She immediately realized that the woman looked familiar, and after putting two and two together, she realized the woman was “Mae”.
Shyann called her grandmother and told her that she had a hunch that Mae was the woman who kidnapped the children. However, her grandmother warned her that many people look alike.
Still embarrassed by what she saw, Shyann then asked her cousin, Mecka Curry, if “Mae” could be the suspect she saw in the photo, named “Nalah Jackson.” After seeing the photo, Mecka immediately had a bad feeling. She knew then and there that she wanted to get to the bottom of the incident.
Plan a rescue mission
On December 22, 2022, which Mecka believed to be a lucky date, they hatched a plan that would lure “Mae” to Shyann’s car before the police stopped them to arrest the suspect. Although it seemed like a workable plan, it was hard to get it together because several police departments didn’t want to take the two mothers seriously.
However, once the police learned of the plan, they cooperated. “Mae” had asked Shyann if she wanted to buy more toys, and they used her to lure the suspect into the car. Once inside, Shyann and Mecka knew it was 100% the suspect they had seen in the photo.
“The confirmation was just too crazy,” Mecka commented. Although they confirmed they had a criminal inside their car, they kept their cool so the woman wouldn’t suspect anything. When the police arrived at the scene during a traffic stop, the mothers broadcast the whole ordeal live.
The suspect, who was Nalah Jackson, was arrested by the police. However, the women still had one thing to do: find Kason, the missing baby. Both women knew he was probably still in his mother’s stolen car, a 2010 Honda Accord.
Using a bus ticket the suspect had left behind, the duo searched every bus stop on the route before finally finding the car Kason was in. It all happened too fast when they confirmed he was inside the car.
They shouted, ran, called people and signaled for police to save the young boy. Eventually, Kason was returned to his family, who were extremely grateful for the selfless work Shyann and Mecka put in to save their baby boy.
Found with his family
While Kason recuperated in a hospital before returning home for the holidays, Jackson was in jail and charged with two counts of kidnapping. The boy’s grandmother, LaFonda Thomas, expressed her gratitude to Shyann and Mecka for what they had done. She said:
“Mecka and Shyy – I appreciate you, my family appreciates you. What you did, it took courage.”
Kason’s twin brother, Kyair, was left in his car seat with a blanket wrapped around him in a parking lot at Dayton International Airport. He was found between two vehicles a day after the car was stolen. It wasn’t until two days later that Kason was found, thanks to the heroic efforts of Shyann and Mecka.
It was a Christmas miracle for the Thomas family as their darling baby was found 280km from their home. What they were most grateful for was that he was found safe and healthy.
