5-Week-Old Missing Baby Was Last Seen with Babysitter
Tristan's mom last heard from the babysitter on Friday, when she said they were going to the grocery store
Missing 5-week-old baby Tristan Cayden Douglas has been found unharmed after going missing on Saturday.
Louisiana State Police located the infant and his babysitter Sarah Harris, 48, on Congress Street on Chef Menteur Highway in New Orleans East early Sunday morning, according to WWLTV.
Harris has been charged with aggravated kidnapping, the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office confirmed to the news station.
Tristan was “slightly dehydrated” but in good health, St. Bernard Paris Sheriff James Pohlmann told WWLTV.
“This was a great outcome, the best it could have been,” he said. “The longer something like this goes on, the less likely the chance is for a good outcome.”
Harris disappeared with the infant Friday after telling his mother, Takisha Douglas, that she was taking him to a New Orleans grocery store, according to WWLTV.
Douglas has known Harris for years, but this was the first time she babysat for Douglas, Pohlmann told the news outlet.
