FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A 2-year-old California girl who had been abducted
by her mother was being returned Thursday to her home in Sacramento after
being located this week in Cumberland County.
Investigators said the child, Maliah Dorsey, had been abducted in
JSacramento in January by 25-year-old Regina Jenkins. Jenkins surrendered
herself and Dorsey to Cumberland County deputies on Tuesday.
Dorsey was being returned to California through the cooperation of the
Department of Social Services. Jenkins, who waived extradition back to
California, was being held under in the Cumberland County Detention
Center under $100,000 bond.
Jenkins was being charged by the Sacramento County District Attorney’s
Office with detention/concealment of a child and by the FBI with
interstate flight to avoid prosecution.
Dorsey’s abduction has been profiled on the Web site for the National
Center for Missing and EXploited Children.
