New Orleans Police are looking for two women who their sister accuses of kidnapping her children. 

The NOPD has obtained arrest warrants for Denisha Hilton, 24, and Denise Hilton, 25, for simple kidnapping. 

The two are accused of kidnapping their sister’s 4-year-old and their other sister, a 15-year-old girl, as well as a third child, an eight-year-old whose relationship to the Hiltons has not been released. 

The complaining sister says she dropped off her child to her 15-year-old sister, who was going to babysit while she was at work. The teen was with Denisha, her sister, police say. When she called her teenage sister to arrange to pick up her child, Denisha and Denise allegedly told her they would bring the child to her once the two finished running errands for the day.

This was on Saturday. The mother hadn’t heard from her sisters, so she reached Denisha and Denise, who allegedly told her that they were not returning her daughter at the moment and would not disclose the child’s location, but advised that the child was safe.

In addition to the 4-year-old child, Denisha and Denise Hilton have also refused to return the 15-year-old juvenile sister and an 8-year-old juvenile to their legal guardians as well, police say. 

Based on the circumstances of this investigation, Fifth District detectives were able to secure arrest warrants for Denisha and Denise Hilton. Each suspect is wanted on three counts of simple kidnapping.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Denisha Hilton, Denise Hilton and/or the three juveniles reported to be with them is asked to contact Fifth District detectives at 504-658-6050 or call anonymously to Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll free at 1-877-903-7867.
