EAST LIBERTY (KDKA)- A woman from the East Hills is accused of kidnapping her three children from their foster home.
Police are looking for 33-year-old Toy Nixon-McCray, but her children have since been located.
They say Nixon-McCray took the children from their foster home in East Liberty around 2 p.m. Sunday.
The children are ages 14, 5 and 6 months.
Around 5 p.m. Monday, though, a relative arranged to turn in the children at the courthouse downtown. All three will be taken to Children’s Hospital for a medical evaluation.
Police and attorneys had been in negotiations all day with Nixon-McCray to turn in the children. It’s unclear still if she will face charges.
Police said earlier that they wanted to recover the children, but didn’t think the children were in danger.
“We do not believe the children are in any danger,” said Pittsburgh Police Cmdr. RaShall Brackney. “And we can understand that this mother is extremely frustrated, scared and upset. The children were originally placed into placement as a result of conditions in the home, and not necessarily child abuse.”
Police believe Nixon-McCray may have left the foster home Sunday in a jitney.
Anyone with information on Nixon-McCray’s whereabouts is asked to call Pittsburgh Police.
