Woman ac­cused of kid­nap­ping

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCAL BRIEFING -

Tem­ple po­lice said a 34-year-old woman was ar­rested Satur­day in Ge­or­gia af­ter a mother told po­lice her 2-year-old daugh­ter had been kid­napped.

The woman told po­lice she had en­trusted her child to her friend, Court­ney Elaine Her­nan­dez, in late June while she moved from Killeen to San An­to­nio. But Her­nan­dez did not bring back the child on July 2 as the women had agreed, po­lice said.

The mother called po­lice on Satur­day, and de­tec­tives learned that “Her­nan­dez had been al­legedly telling peo­ple the child be­longed to her,” po­lice said. The child was found ap­par­ently un­harmed and will be re­turned to her mother; Her­nan­dez will be charged with kid­nap­ping when she is re­turned to Cen­tral Texas, po­lice said.
