(Camden, NJ) – A 4-month-old boy was reported missing to police Saturday morning after his mother attempted to contact the babysitter – Nadajia Hill, 22, of Camden – and pick up her son at a home on 33rd Street.
After the baby was reported missing, the Camden County Police Department immediately launched a full investigation, dedicating officers and detectives who were joined by personnel from the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, New Jersey State Police, New Jersey Transit Police and Newark Police.
Through their investigation, detectives learned that Hill, after assuming care for the baby Friday night, had taken him to Newark using public transportation. Hill was then determined to be on a southbound New Jersey Transit RiverLine train with the baby, and they were located by officers on the train when it stopped in Riverside just after 12:30 p.m. today. The baby was found to be in good health and was returned to his family.
Hill was arrested and charged with Kidnapping and Child Endangerment and was remanded to the Camden County Jail.
“We would like to thank all of the partner agencies that immediately responded and helped ensure that this infant was located unharmed and safely returned to his family,” said Chief J. Scott Thomson. “This includes the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, New Jersey State Police, New Jersey Transit Police, Newark Police, New Jersey Department of Child Protection & Permanency and the Delran Emergency Squad, all of whom helped ensure the best possible outcome for this case.”← Officers of the Week – Gabrielle Camacho and Tyrrell Bagby Missing person – Christopher Strong →
