GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The woman who prompted an Amber Alert after taking a 1-year-old boy she babysits for over 24 hours is facing a felony charge.
Iyesha Gibbs, 19, is facing one count of kidnapping involving child enticement, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. She is expected to arraigned on the charge this weekend.
Gibbs was supposed to watch 1-year-old Miquis Jenkins for a few hours on Wednesday, but left Cambridge Apartments around 1:30 p.m. and never came back. Relatives say Gibbs often babysits the child.
The baby’s mother, Laquaya Gillard, began messaging and calling Gibbs on Facebook just before 5 p.m. Wednesday. She said she could see Gibbs was seeing the messages, but wasn’t responding and eventually blocked Gillard on Facebook just before 11 p.m.
