Troopers say they located a missing, endangered 5-month-old child after a "Be on the Lookout" alert was issued from the state of Florida.
Troopers tell us they received a tip that a blue Chrysler Town and Country van, driven by 38-year-old Gloria Reyes of Orlando, Florida, was headed towards Acadiana on I-10. Reyes was wanted for aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon in Florida. Law enforcement believed she had the infant with her.
Troopers tell us they positioned themselves along I-10 and were able to locate the vehicle. Reyes was pulled over at the Henderson exit and taken into custody without incident. Troopers say they found the child in the vehicle in good condition and arrangements are being made to take her back to Florida.
