SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – A 32-year-old San Jose woman who allegedly abducted her infant son last month has been found, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.
Satima Michelle Purnell has been charged with child abduction for leaving with her 10-month-old son Davione Doe. Purnell hadn’t been seen since July 9 when she learned she lost custody of the baby to the Santa Clara County Department of Family and Children’s Services, prosecutors said.
Investigators were unable to establish contact with Purnell, who they believed was traveling with the child. Authorities were concerned for the child, who has a “serious” medical condition, but he was found safe as of Thursday afternoon, according to the district attorney’s office.
Purnell was apprehended as of Monday morning, prosecutors said.
