Birmingham, AL 07/13/2018
5-year-old twin girls and their 2-year-old sister are safe following an abduction by their non-custodial mother this morning.
The mother, 27-year-old, Derick Irisha Brown, does not have custodial rights. She went to a home in the 1900 block of Colonial Cove and took the children at gunpoint just before 7:00 am this morning.
A missing child alert was issued.
Just before 2:00 pm this afternoon detectives developed information that Brown was with the children at a hotel in Fairfield. A deputy located her there in a vehicle and she fled. After a brief pursuit she struck a Sheriff’s vehicle and stopped at Court I and 40th Street in Ensley. No one was injured.
The children were found safe and unharmed in the vehicle. Brown was taken into custody and transported to the Jefferson County Jail to await formal charges.
