UPDATE 6/1517 – Baby Jackson may have been found. North Las Vegas Police stated that a child was left at the Portals to Glory Pentecostal church on Wednesday. A man and woman they didn’t recognize knocked on the door with an infant they said was “Baby Girl Jackson,” reports CBS affiliate KLAS. Authorities are hoping the couple will come forward with more information. DNA testing will be done to establish the baby’s identity.
Original story: Authorities have released information that they are looking for a 4-month-old baby girl.
Octavia Jackson, 33, of Nevada the mother of the child has not told the authorities where the baby is. Jackson has been charged with perjury and falsification and Nicholas Nealy, 37, of Fort Mohave have been charged with custodial interference.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reported that the Arizona Department of Child Services officials began a child abuse investigation 14 months ago that was focused on Nealy and Jackson, who say they’re married and are the parents of 12 and 13-year-old girls and an 8-year-old boy. A judge ordered the children to be placed with child services in 2016. During the process, CPS found out that Jackson had given birth to a baby in Las Vegas on Feb. 10, 2017. Jackson at first denied it, but later confessed it was true, but will not divulge the location of the baby.
As the name of the child is unknown and Jackson is not cooperating, the baby is being called “Baby Girl Jackson.”
Jackson and Nealy lived in Las Vegas, San Diego and Arizona.
If you know the whereabouts of Baby Girl Jackson, please call the San Diego Police Dept. No photo of the baby has been released.
