ROSE HILL (KSNT) – The Kansas Bureau of Investigation has announced that a missing Kansas child has been found by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol on Thursday night.
According to the KBI, Brixton was found safely by the OHP through “outstanding” assistance from the public. Several tips were able to lead investigators to the suspects and find Brixton.
The KBI initially reported that the missing child was Brixton Sisk. The Rose Hill School District Police Department told the KBI at 4:54 p.m. on Thursday that a woman entered the school’s day care posing as a social worker at 2:40 p.m. The woman obtained access to Brixton, exited the school, entered a black vehicle and left the location.
The woman was later identified as Brixton’s mother, Danielle Banzet, who had her parental rights taken away by the court. Actions taken by Banzet prior to the abduction, including threats of violence, show that Brixton is in imminent danger.
At 6:04 p.m., the KBI put out another report stating that an unknown male driver was driving the suspect vehicle and the abductor got into the front passenger seat.
At 6:29 p.m., the KBI said that they believe the suspect vehicle to be a black Suburban with a paper 30-day tag on it.
At 7:06 p.m., the KBI said that the male counterpart and Brixton have switched vehicles to a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta, Kansas license 461NWF and may be fleeing the immediate area.
At 9:12 p.m., the KBI reported that the Jetta has been found abandoned in rural Cowley County.
