According to police, Ky’air Thomas, one of the twin infants whose abduction in Ohio a month ago led to a nationwide Amber Alert, has passed away.
Just before 11 p.m., Columbus police were called about an infant who wasn’t breathing. Saturday.
The 6-month-old was transported to Children’s Hospital by emergency personnel, where he was declared dead less than an hour later.
An autopsy will be performed on Monday, according to WBNS-TV, and authorities are “actively investigating.”
Police withheld any other information on the infant’s passing.
At the age of 5 months, Ky’air and his brother Kason were abducted while their mother went into a pizza to pick up an order and left them outside in a running car with the doors unlocked.
After some time, Ky’air was discovered in a car seat between two automobiles in a parking area about 70 miles west of Columbus, close to the Dayton International Airport.
Kason was apprehended at a Papa John’s in the Indianapolis area on December 22, still in the stolen car.
Both infants were said to be secure.
The 24-year-old Nalah Jackson was detained, accused of kidnapping, and charged on two federal charges of kidnapping a juvenile.
She left the restaurant alone when the mother arrived, got in the car, and took off.
She was captured on surveillance footage leaving a gas station, and police have released images of the black, four-door Accord.
It was said that two women were crucial in helping to locate her and the boys.
Police are looking into Ky’air’s passing.
