Police Find Car Belonging to Abandoned Baby’s Missing Mother
BRECKENRIDGE HILLS, Mo. – Police in St. Louis found a car they believe belongs to Ebony Jackson, the mother still missing and whose baby boy was discovered alone in an apartment complex hallway on Friday.
Police found the car just before noon Tuesday. Authorities had asked for a court order turn on a GPS device on the car, but it is unclear if police found it first or if the GPS helped them locate it.
Jackson’s fourth-month old baby boy, Donovan Prom, was discovered inside his car seat, wrapped up, and with a full bottle early Friday morning.
Jackson, 30, is originally from East St. Louis. Her family told police that she had been in Oklahoma, but left there on Wednesday to return to family in the St. Louis area.
Her last known phone call was made to her cousin who lives about 20 miles away from where Baby Donovan was found. Jatouris Simon says that call indicated Ebony was headed his way but she never arrived.
“She called me all the time,” said Simon. “This is not like her.”
Relatives say their loved one was so proud of her son that they can`t believe she would willingly leave him behind.
A man identifying himself as the baby’s father drove to Breckenridge Hills on Saturday. Police are waiting for DNA results to confirm the man`s claims.
Relatives of Jackson-Shelton hope anyone with information on the whereabouts of their loved one will call police. Breckenridge Hills is about 16 miles northwest of St. Louis. Anyone with information is asked to call 314-426-1214.
