Kidnapping Suspect Arrested

An East Texas woman accused of kidnapping her children 16 years ago is in a California jail. Authorities say, 48 year old Catherine Walker was arrested over the weekend during a routine traffic stop. They then discovered she had an outstanding parental abduction warrant. Walker allegedly kidnapped her two daughters in August of 1987 from their home in Gilmer. The daughters, now 22 and 19 years old, were reunited with their father in February after the girls found their birth certificates and tracked him down.
