Two face kidnapping charges in Liberty AMBER Alert


LIBERTY, Mo. — Prosecutors charged two people in connection with Tuesday night’s AMBER Alert in Liberty.

Ashley Haygood, 31, is charged with parental kidnapping, and a judge issued a warrant for her arrest.

Prosecutors also charged 24-year-old David Giron with kidnapping and assault, and police took him into custody.

Police responded to a Liberty apartment around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. They said the boy’s mother and two men took the child from his father. Officers said the men were armed with a pistol and a knife.

The boy was located several hours later, and miles away, at a hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. Investigators say the baby’s mother took him to the hospital so doctors could check on his health.

A 10-month-old boy was handed over to relatives according to Liberty police.

Officers are still looking for a third suspect. He is known as Twanty. Contact Liberty police if you know his whereabouts.

Investigators expect the Missouri Division of Family Services, courts and other family members will be involved in any future custody arrangements involving the 10-month-old.
