Earlier this year a judge sentenced Reashala Morris to eight years probation for kidnapping Jakaila Brantly. The young girl had disappeared from Mothercare Daycare in April. Morris had worked at the daycare at the time of the kidnapping.

Crime victims' advocate Andy Kahn says Morris did not report to halfway house as ordered and also admitted using marijuana.

"Hopefully we'll get her picked up and put back in custody and brought before the judge," Kahn explained. "Take a good hard look at what she's done and that's what they're going to have to make a decision whether she should remain in the community or obviously as a violation of her probation go to the penitentiary where at least you'd know she'd be locked up safe and sound you'd know her whereabouts."

Anyone who has seen Reashala Morris is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
