Hours before Kason Thomass was found, suspect Nalah Jackson was found and taken into custody in Indianapolis.
Columbus police say Cayson was found wearing the same outfit inside a stolen Honda Accord. The car was found near Papa John’s on Indiana Avenue.
“It will be the best Christmas ever. WBNS: “I’m happy, I’m happy, I’m excited.”
Kayson’s parents flew to Indianapolis to pick up their son Thursday night, his grandmother said.
“I have to make sure he has the same smile,” she said.
“We are grateful to the public for their support during this investigation and to the tireless efforts of our officers and many of our partner agencies. Elaine Bryant said in a statement.
Columbus Police say the emergency operations center remains open even though Cayson was found. Call the tip line at 614-645-4701 if you have any information to help with this case.
Police said Jackson stole the car from Donato’s Pizza in Columbus’s Short North neighborhood around 9:45 p.m. Monday. Inside the car were the twins Casson and Kiea Thomas.
Kyair Thomass was found at Dayton International Airport on Tuesday, while Kason Thomass remained missing.
The child was found safe and alive

Police say they received several calls Thursday morning from people who thought they had seen Jackson in Indianapolis. Her location was around 2pm and her ID was fingerprinted.
A spokesperson for the Indianapolis FBI said the Columbus Police Department was the lead agency and the Cincinnati FBI office was handling the case.
Kason’s parents were informed of Jackson’s arrest. Now that Jackson has crossed state lines, Columbus Police say this could “absolutely” be a federal investigation.
