Fort Oglethorpe police were able to recover a missing child Monday afternoon, Feb. 6, but the child's mother is still on the run after abducting him over the weekend.
Thirty-five-year-old Amanda Demarious Holloway of Fort Oglethorpe is wanted on a charge of interference with custody after she allegedly botched a visitation with the child, and failed to return him to his custodial grandparent last week.
Detectives say Holloway picked up her son, Brody Waylon Vincent, 4, on Friday afternoon, Feb. 3, to spend a few hours with him, and then never returned the child and was without contact for the entire weekend.
On Monday morning, detectives were notified of the situation and began looking for both Holloway and the child.
According to Lt. Steve Blevins, the duo was located late Monday afternoon in Rossville where the child was recovered safely.
"We found them in Rossville, and the child was fine," Blevins said. "Officers were talking with the mother about the situation and strapping the child into a car seat to take him back to his grandparent when the mother took off from the scene on foot."
Arrest warrants were then taken out for Holloway.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Amanda Holloway is encouraged to contact Fort Oglethorpe Police detective Tammy Davis at 706-866-2512.
