Yup she was withholding the child prior to this.
She has been arrested and the daughter is in custody of social services. I couldn't figure out how to post the link. Go to wbko.com.
Police: Woman wanted in Logan County arrested; daughter found safe
This article adds the detail of where arrested.
Missing Logan County woman arrested in Warren County; child found safe - WNKY
According to the jail, Otero is charged with kidnapping a minor, third-degree terroristic threatening, intimidating a participant in the legal process and felony custodial interference.
Bowling Green police tell WNKY that Otero was arrested when she visited a Cabinet for Health and Family Services office on Suwannee Trail and police were notified.
“Amanda Otero, 32, was arrested by Bowling Green police and is lodged in the Warren County Regional Jail. Her daughter, Amya Grace Otero, 3, is safe and is now in protective custody, according to the Logan County Sheriff’s Office.”
Glad to know the little girl is safe and interestingly, in protective custody. We shall see if it is temporary and what hoops the Dad has to jump thru to regain her. I bet Gma is going to vouch for Dad so he can meet the requirements. At least that would give Amya the stability she needs.
Something isn’t right in this case as we are hearing about it.
Apparently mom had custody of Amya and dad filed for an emergency hearing. What caused this? What did Amanda do to upset dad to go to court for this custody change?
It appears we are mainly hearing about Amanda’s shooting of a person back when she was 18-20. She was eventually acquitted. I am unable to access the documents because it says I am on a private domain, therefore, what I am reading are the bits and pieces on the forum.
If she was acquitted, why is she still being talked about as if she was quilty and a terrible person?
Since there child is a minor we will not get to see the filings and allegations made in emergency temporary custody case. It could be any number of things that are enumerated in those documents by the father's attorney. Had she turned up at the emergency custody hearing things could have turned out differently in that the father's emergency temporary custody could have been denied. Heck, with the way it works in the United States where fathers have huge uphill burdens to change any aspect of child custody the father still could have lost his case even if she hadn't shown up but instead she was recorded in a call to the father's attorney's office making a threat and that, no doubt, was played to the Judge in the hearing.
Through the grapevine....I get the feeling neither one of them have been great parents....the grandmother has been taking care of the baby. So sad.
How sad for this child if that’s the case. Being ripped from the only stable person in her life. For her sake I hope that’s not the case and Dad takes care of her.
Amanda has been moved to Logan County now. Her charges appear the same.
Amanda is still in Logan County. She's been bound over for trial. Her bond is only $10k however.
Amya is back with Dad now. They investigated Mom's allegations she made when she was arrested and cleared him.
Mother accused of taking daughter appears for pretrial conference; case bound over to grand jury
Another set of parents who will hopefully learn to co-parent better now that the court of public opinion has crucified them in social media. In this case it sounds like they both need parenting class and maybe a “how adulting really works” class. Stay employed, behave yourself, provide a stable life for your child, etc. and above all, love your child more than you hate your Ex.
