2004 Missing Boy Found With Former Babysitter

 AP is reporting that — and authorities confirm — a Texas boy, who vanished eight years ago and was found living with his former babysitter, is in foster care and doing fine.


The Texas Department of Family Protective Services said Thursday that 8-year-old Miguel Morin will remain at a foster home in the Houston area while authorities sort out his complicated case. Miguel was only a baby the time of the kidnapping.

Officials scheduled an emergency court hearing for later in the day. The woman believed to be the boy’s biological mother, Auboni Champion-Morin, is expected to appear and perhaps to testify.

Estella Olguin of the family services agency said authorities hope to perform a DNA test on Morin as soon as possible.

Krystle Rochelle Tanner was arrested Monday on kidnapping charges in Morin’s late 2004 abduction. She was a suspect in the  case of the missing baby. The 26-year-old woman was jailed in San Augustine, about 140 miles northeast of Houston.
