KEMP, Texas (FOX 44) – UPDATE: The mother and child have been found, according to the Kemp Police Department.
Abigail Margaret Williams, along with her son Xyavier Calliste, were found in North Carolina at approximately 2 a.m. Friday. With assistance from the Fayetteville, North Carolina Police Department, Williams and Calliste were picked up at a bus terminal in town.
Investigators were able to track Williams’ travel from when she left the shelter – first by traveling to Dallas then headed out east – presumably on a bus – to North Carolina. Williams was taken into custody on a outstanding warrant for Interfering with Child Custody regarding this incident.
Williams is being held in North Carolina until extradition can be made back to Texas. Calliste is currently being kept in North Carolina’s Children’s Protective Services until Texas CPS can make arrangements to bring the child back to Smith County.
The Texas Department of Public Safety issued an Amber Alert on Thursday afternoon for a 13-week-old baby boy from Kemp. Kemp is about 44 miles southeast of Dallas.
