Female Fugitive Back in Upshur County

An East Texas woman, on the run for 16 years after allegedly kidnapping her own children, is back in Texas today. 49 year old Catherine Walker was arrested in Blair California over a week ago.

She's been wanted by police and the F-B-I for abducting her children from her East Mountain home in 1987. Walker vanished that august with her two daughters. The three moved to several different states over 16 years under different names before being caught.

Walker was arraigned for kidnapping and is in the Upshur County Jail on 250-thousand dollar bond. If convicted she could face 10 years in prison.
