Child Abduction Regional Emergency/AMBER Alert Police Seek 3 Kids Taken by Mother

UPDATE:

Shortly after midnight, a motel manager in South Los Angeles reported sightings of Oshea Jackson and her three children and called police.  When police knocked on the door, Jackson answered and was immediately detained.  The young children were found to be in good health and taken into protective custody.

Los Angeles: Arkansas authorities and the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) are asking for the publics help in locating three young children taken by their biological mother, Oshea Jackson.  Jackson previously lost custody of her children after the courts determined she was incapable of caring for them.  The Arkansas Department of Human Services was granted custody of the children, but Jackson fled with them before they could be taken into protective custody.

Jackson is described as a 39-year-old female African American with black hair and brown eyes.  She stands 5 feet 7 inches tall and has her name “Oshea Jackson” and “Ice Cube” tattooed on her forehead.  She was last seen at the Los Angeles Union Mission located at 545 South San Pedro Boulevard in Los Angeles on September 2, 2010.  She is believed to be traveling in a green 1996 Honda Accord with Arkansas license plate 6-8-0-N-J-B.

The children are described as Ji RahKing, a female African American, 3-years-old; Al-Kalima Jackson, male African American, 1-year-old; and Iyahwey Jackson, male African American, 4 months old.  

Anyone with information or the whereabouts of Jackson and the children are asked to call 911 immediately.
