    Exclamation NC - James Harris, 3, Statesville, 11 May 2009

    AMBER ALERT: Authorities still searching for missing 3-year-old

    Police across the Southeast are looking this morning for a 3-year-old boy who was reported missing Monday afternoon at Signal Hill Mall in Statesville.

    An amber alert has been issued, and police say they believe the child, James Ashley Harris, was taken by his mother, Kira Leneshia Shaw-Wright, 28.

    James' grandparents have legal custody of the child, but Shaw-Wright was visiting with her son at the mall. Statesville Police Department Assistant Chief Bill Halliburton said this was part of a regular visitation schedule, but Shaw-Wright is not supposed to be alone with the boy. Shaw-Wright, James and his grandparents were walking around the mall when the grandparents lost sight of the two, and she left the mall with James, he said.

    Police say Wright might be traveling to Atlanta, but there was no sign of her overnight.

    Halliburton said warrants for kidnapping have been obtained, and they are working with police in Atlanta in an attempt to locate Shaw-Wright and her son.

    Halliburton said police have no idea of what type of vehicle Shaw-Wright is operating.

    He said there is no indication that Shaw-Wright might be violent with the boy, but the fact that she kidnapped him is a concern for authorities.
    Halliburton said no sightings have been reported and no calls have come in on the case since the Amber Alert was issued Monday night.

    Thanks for posting this! Even though she may be heading the opposite way from me, I will still be keeping my eyes out...you never know. I hope the little cutie is found soon unharmed.
    Happy New Years

    Signal Hill Mall

    These grandparents really must not have been paying attention. I live in Statesville and you can see pretty much the whole mall from anywhere in the mall. It is a very tiny mall. I have kept my eyes open even though I am sure she has left town. If only we had a vehicle description, it sure would help.

    I found a couple of myspace pages I think are hers, one is in Statesville, two are in Atlanta, Ga. Looks like she's an escort if this is her and on one of the pages she has her ph# on a picture.

    Warrants issued for mother of missing 3-year-old

    A woman who abducted her 3-year-old son during a visitation Monday will face kidnapping charges.

    Statesville Police Department Assistant Chief Bill Halliburton said warrants for kidnapping have been issued for Kira Leneshia Shaw-Wright, 28.

    An Amber Alert for Shaw-Wright's 3-year-old son, James Harris, was issued Monday after Shaw-Wright took him from Signal Hill Mall during a regular visitation, Halliburton said.

    Shaw-Wright does not have custody of the boy. His grandparents are his legal custodians.

    I found the Myspaces you're talking about, and I agree. They all are hers. The one with her phone number on her pictures looks like she's an escort, and a member of some modeling agency called Success Management. It also lists her as an exotic dancer and the "CEO and Mogul" of 3 agencies.

    That really irritates me. This little boy needs to be found. It really irritates me when LE tends to give some cases higher priority and status than other cases. EVERY missing child is important.

    I was reading the descriptions of James and his mother. The mother's height says 5'10" and the weight is 100 lbs. Do you think that's a typo? Seems awfully thin to me.

    James is precious. I'm in VA but just in case they head in the opposite direction, I'll keep my eyes open. I hope he's found safe and soon.

    100lbs at that height is pretty small, but I don't think it's a typo. Prior to pregnancy, I was 102lbs and I'm about 5'6. So, it's possible. I looked at her Myspace page, and she definitely is very tall and skinny.

    I USED to be 5'5" and 98 lbs. I guess it was the height that threw me. At 5'10" and 100 lbs. she would be noticable.
