Less than 30 minutes after a nationwide BOLO (Be On The Lookout) had been issued, a Mississippi teenager suspected of kidnapping a young mother and her 2-year-old child was taken into custody Saturday evening by Minden and Webster Parish lawmen.
Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton said 17-year-old Dakota M. Thornton of Magee, Miss., was arrested without incident about 11 p.m. Saturday after he pulled off Interstate 20 eastbound at the La. Hwy. 532 exit. Sexton said 17-year-old Erica Leeanne Walters and her son, Zane, were found unharmed in the vehicle.
