Two in custody after reported kidnapping of baby in Lone Jack

Two young adults were arrested Tuesday after a mother said the father of her daughter kidnapped a 6-month-old girl in Lone Jack.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s office said in a news release that a 22-year-old man from Oak Grove and a 20-year-old woman from Blue Springs were arrested and the child was recovered unharmed.

The mother of the girl met with the two about in the 100 Block of Battlefield Road in Lone Jack at a business for a visit between the child and her father. The mother called police about 11 p.m. Monday and reported that the two took off with the girl. Authorities found the child and returned the girl to her mother a few hours later.

The suspects were being held in the Jackson County jail on Tuesday pending charges.
