Kidnapping Mother to be Extradited from California

Its a trip back to Texas soon for an East Texas woman accused of kidnapping her own children 16 years ago. 49 year old Catherine Walker of East mountain was arrested in California last week after a routine traffic stop.

Walker vanished from her East mountain home in August of 1987 with her two daughters, who were in the legal custody of their father. The three moved to several different states over 16 years under different names before being caught.

Walker has waived extradition in a California bail hearing and will be picked up and brought back to Texas by Upshur county officials within the next 10 days. If convicted she could face a maximum of 10 years in prison.
