The mother of 5 day old, Kayden Powell reported her son missing from her home after she woke up at 4:30 a.m. Thursday morning and found his bassinet empty. 18 year old Brianna Marshall lives in the home also with the baby’s father, 23 year old Bruce Powell.
Marshall’s half-sister had apparently been visiting the home before the baby was discovered missing, and according to police reports, she had left the home about 1:30 a.m. to drive back to her home in Colorado. Once the police found her and questioned her there was no sign of the baby with her. She is now no longer considered a person of interest, yet she was arrested on an unrelated fraud charge from an outstanding warrant from Texas.
The police say they have no suspects and there was no apparent break-in at the house in the Town of Beloit, Wisconsin. They say both of the missing child’s parents have been cooperating with them in the investigation.
Kayden has been described as being African-American. He is 20 inches long and he weighs 6 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.
The Town of Beloit Police Department are asking that anyone with any information on the whereabouts of the baby to please call them at 608-757-2244. The disappearance of Kayden is not considered to be a part of a custody battle and an Amber Alert was not issued because the case doesn’t meet the criteria. An alert is issued when the missing child in question if believed to be in immediate danger and there is a description of the child, suspect or getaway car.
I pray that this innocent child will be found soon and that no harm comes to him.
Update: Katden Powell was found safe this morning, wrapped in blankets inside a tote bag near a gas station off Interstate 80 in Iowa, police said. Thank you God!!!
