A victim of a Case Type: Non Family Abduction, 9-Month-old, Saniya Jaynelle Purcell, was reported missing on May 24, 2009 from Raeford, NC. She may be in the company of 17-year-old Renesha Shante Griner.
According to America’s Most Wanted (AMW), they may be in Columbus, Ga.
Police say Griner asked the child’s mother if she could take Saniya and watch her for two weeks, but the mother said she didn’t think Griner could handle the responsibility.
On May 22, 2009, Griner came to the house where Saniya and her mother live in Raeford, N.C.
She was supposed to watch the child at her house, a short drive away, in Raeford, but cops say she took off.
On May 24, 2009, Saniya’s mother contacted police.
She said Griner had taken her child and left town.
Police found that Griner had taken Saniya on a Greyhound bus to Columbus, Ga. and no one has seen them since.
The Hoke County baby sitter who disappeared with her 9-month-old charge a week ago before being arrested in Alabama was extradited to Hoke County on Sunday.
Hoke County Sheriff Hubert Peterkin said Sunday night that Renesha Shante Griner, 17, had been processed and placed under $500,000 bond. She came in between 6:30 and 7 p.m. and was being held at the detention center of the Hoke County Jail.
Griner waived her right to contest extradition.
“She didn’t give us any problems with that,” Peterkin said.
Griner has been charged with first-degree kidnapping.
