UPDATE: Zahkairi has been safely found and reunited with her mother. Ralph Morrison turned himself in Monday night.
Howard County police say 28-year-old Ralph Waldo Morrison brought Zahkairi to a private attorney’s office in Texarkana and turned himself in. Morrison was arrested and taken to the Howard County Jail with a bond set at $250,000.
An Amber Alert has been put out for Zahkairi Morrison, 1 1/2, was last seen on Buckeye Street in Tollette, Arkansas.
Authorities believe that she may be with Ralph Waldo Morrison III. Zahkairi went missing around 12:38 p.m. on Sunday.
Ralph Morrison had used a car to collide with a car with Amaria Webster (Zahkairi’s mother), Zahkairi and two other passengers. Morrison got out of his car and began beating and stabbing one of the passengers and Webster with an ice pick. Howard County Sheriff Butch Morris said Monday that Amaria Webster was treated at a hospital and released.
Chief Deputy Bryan McJunkins says Ralph Morrison took Zahkairi and walked into the woods. They believe that Morrison was able to get a ride from at least three different people.
