MACON COUNTY, Mo. – UPDATE 4:50 p.m.: Prosecutors in Audrain County charged Toinyia Combs with one felony count of parental kidnapping on Tuesday afternoon.
ORIGINAL STORY: A mid-Missouri mother could face charges after investigators accused her of kidnapping her child on Monday night.
According to the Mexico Department of Public Safety, Toinyia Combs, 20, of Mexico, met the legal guardian of her infant boy at a public place in the 600 block of Summit Street around 9:30 p.m so she could visit the child.
Police said Combs then put the boy in a car and drove away even though the guardian tried to stop her.
Law enforcement officers across the state were told about the alleged kidnapping at 11:11 p.m. A trooper with the Missouri State Highway Patrol later found Combs and the infant in Macon County.
The boy was returned unhurt to his legal guardian.
Combs is held in the Macon County Jail pending Mexico Department of Public Safety and the Audrain County Prosecuting Attorney getting a warrant for parental kidnapping.
