Jamal Powell kidnapped from Killeen, Texas.
UPDATE 3/1/17 – Just heard that Jamal Powell does not exist. An investigation determined that the “reported kidnapping was false, and that the reporting parties fabricated the identity of Jamal Powell in an alleged attempt to get a faster response from local law enforcement officials; there was never a child, KPD told KDH News. Lanae Hoskins and James Harris, were cleared of all charges, police said. No word on who the boy is in the picture.
Original Story: Three-year-old Jamal Powell is believed to have been kidnapped from Texas, reports KWTX news. Jamal was last seen at 4807 Golden Gate Drive, in Kileen. The child was at the home when Lanae Hoskins and James Harris stole some money from the home using a gun and then left taking Jamal with them. They drove off in a 2015 gray Dodge Charger with Indiana license plates.
The Charger has dark tinted windows, stock rims and some damage to the right front drive and passenger doors.
Jamal was wearing a white onesie with an unknown pattern. Jamal’s caretaker stated that Hoskins and Harris may be heading to Louisiana.
At this writing it is unknown the relationship if any between Hoskins, Harris or Powell.
No Amber Alert has been activated at this writing which is very strange considering they have a description of a car which means it should meet the criteria for Amber Alert.
If you see the vehicle or Jamal please call the Killeen Police Dept. at 254-501-8830.
