Young girl kidnapped from East Texas found safe in Arkansas

TEXARKANA, AR (KLTV) -

A six-year-old girl who was kidnapped from White Oak early Sunday morning was found a few hours later near Texarkana, AR.

According to the Miller County Sheriff's Department, the girl was found walking down a road in Miller County, AR without any shoes on. The couple took her to a Texarkana hospital where authorities discovered she was reported missing at 3:30 a.m. on Sunday from White Oak, TX.

White Oak police say the child was taken from a residence in the 200 block of East Center Street by Jeremy Jones, a relative of the child. Jones was arrested in Antler, OK a few hours later on a kidnapping warrant. He is being held in the Pushmataha County Jail.

"We got to hospital at 6, our understanding is the suspect was arrested by 7 in the morning in Oklahoma," said Brain Tribble, an investigator for the Miller County Sheriff's Office.

The child was released to her parents after spending time at CHRISTUS St. Michael Hospital in Texarkana. She was in good condition when she arrived at the hospital.

The case remains under investigation with the assistance of the FBI.
