Mom charged with interfering with baby custody in abduction case | Free Share

An Asbury child was found unharmed and returned to her family after allegedly being abducted from a park Thursday.

Marshall County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Steve Guthrie said deputies responded to the Asbury baseball fields just before 8 pm Thursday after receiving a call for a missing child.

The child’s grandmother – her temporary guardian – reported the child’s mother, Mia Lamunyon, 25, of Crossville, may have taken the girl as she went to the restroom but didn’t return. DeKalb County Department of Human Resources granted the grandmother temporary custody of the child the day before.

Deputies identified a vehicle Lamunyon was in and determined she was traveling toward Birmingham.

Early Friday morning, Guthrie said Lamunyon and the child were found at a home in Fultondale by the Fultondale Police Department.

Marshall County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the scene and the child was returned to the proper guardians.

Lamunyon was taken into custody and charged with interference with child custody. She was booked into the Marshall County Jail and was later released after she posted a $10,000 bond.

Numerous agencies assisted in this investigation, including the Dekalb County Sheriff’s Office, Dekalb County Department of Human Resources, Blount County Sheriff’s Office, Fultondale Police Department, and numerous other agencies in the Birmingham area.

The investigation is still ongoing, Guthrie said.
