Authorities collaborate to help solve child abduction case
OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities in Oklahoma and Georgia worked together to help solve a child abduction case.
According to the U.S. Marshals Service, due to the collaborative efforts of the U.S. Marshals Service Sex Offender Investigations Branch in Oklahoma City and Atlanta, Midwest City Police Department and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, fugitive Tahira Latrease Traylor was arrested in College Park, Georgia on Tuesday.
Officials say Traylor took her 9-year-old son in July 2012 and never returned him to his father.
In 2013 an arrest warrant was issued out of the District Court of Oklahoma County for violation of a Child Custody Order.
In July 2014 authorities found information that showed Traylor fled to Atlanta, Georgia and was living under an alias with the abducted child.
U.S. Marshals say they were able to arrest Traylor and recover the abducted child.
Authorities contacted the child’s father in Oklahoma City and advised him the U.S. Marshals had recovered his son.
The father is currently coordinating with authorities in Georgia to be reunited with his son.
