usnews.com – LANCASTER, S.C. (AP) — Deputies backed by a canine unit and a helicopter chased down a South Carolina man suspected of kidnapping a baby, eventually finding him eating at a fast food restaurant, his clothes bloody, according to authorities.
The baby, they said, was ultimately found safe.
“We all breathed a sigh of relief when we confirmed … that the child had been found, and we are glad the child is safe and unharmed,” Sheriff Barry Faile said.
The Herald of Rock Hill reports Gabriel L’Ambiance Ingram, 28, was sought on suspicion of taking the child of a woman he used to date.
Ingram was accused of leaving Thursday with the nine-month-old infant from the child’s grandmother’s house in Rock Hill without the mother’s permission, according to a statement from South Carolina’s Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office. A Rock Hill Police Department report said that Ingram sometimes visited the child but wasn’t the father.
