Child abducted from Oklahoma found safe in Texas

Friday, July 18, 2014
Authorities say an infant has been found unharmed after she was abducted in Oklahoma.

Dispatcher Traci Tate with the Kingfisher County Sheriff's Department says the 5-month-old girl was found "safe and sound" early Friday morning. She said she could not immediately say where the girl was found, or what condition she was in.

The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety canceled the Amber Alert it had issued earlier for the girl. It provided no further details about her recovery. Media reports out of Oklahoma say the infant was found in Seminole, Texas, which is in between Midland and Lubbock.

Authorities had said earlier the girl was taken from her grandmother's house in Cashion, Oklahoma, by her great aunt, 47-year-old Cindy Findley.

Findley, whose address is listed in The Woodlands, and car registered in Spring, is believed to be taking the baby to Salt Lake City, Utah.

Authorities say Findley has a mental condition and reportedly said she had a vision of the child dying in two days.

Friends of Findley say she's talked about having visions before but nothing notable or alarming. Her neighbors say she has a husband and children; she works for Great American Fundraiser, nothing that would indicate this type of behavior.

Findley is believed to be accompanied by a 43-year-old woman named Jennifer Skousen.
