A pair of Indianapolis cops took a break from searching for a kidnapped baby for a bite to eat, only to find the baby outside the restaurant.
Five-month-old Kason Thomass had been missing for three days after a car he was traveling with his twin, Kyair Thomass, was stolen in Columbus, Ohio, while their mother retrieved a DoorDash order on December 19.
Kyair was found abandoned near Dayton International Airport the next morning, but Kason remains missing.
Indianapolis Police Sgts. Shawn Anderson and Richard El spent Thursday looking for the boy, but returned empty-handed.
They decided to take a break, which led them straight to the black Honda Accord stolen from the twins’ mother. It was parked in front of the pizzeria where the agents had decided to eat.
Officers searched the car and found Kason in the back seat.
“It was time for us to decompress, because we were disappointed that we couldn’t find it, and then God opened the heavens to us and almost took it and put it in our hands.” Anderson told WISH-TV.
“Basically, it happened totally unexpectedly and we located it,” Anderson added.
Nalah Jackson, 24, the woman accused of abducting the twins, was arrested earlier today and now faces kidnapping charges. But the car remained missing until officers found it.
The twins’ family called the discovery a “miracle” in an interview with WBNS-TV.
“It’s going to be the best Christmas ever,” said LaFonda Thomass, the twins’ grandmother.
