LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -
Lake Charles Police say they have identified the woman involved in Friday's incident which led to the search of Contraband Bayou. In a news release received at 11 a.m. Saturday, police spokesman Cpl.. Larry Moss stated that the woman, who would not identify herself, had been identified by her fingerprints. They did not state the woman's name in the release, but said that her husband confirmed her identity and further stated she had no children, nor did she have any access to children.
Friday's search involved multiple area law enforcement agencies near Interstate 210 after witnesses feared the woman may have thrown what appeared to be a child over the I-210 overpass between Lake St. and Nelson Road.
After hours of searching on land and water, nothing was found, and the search was called off for the night. However, police said the investigation into the matter continues.
Just before 6 p.m. Friday, initial reports came in to police that a child was missing.
Lake Charles City Police were contacted about a report of a woman in the roadway on I-210 westbound, reportedly holding a child while darting in and out of traffic.
Witnesses at the Huddle Up Bar and Grill on Contraband Bayou said they heard something heavy splash into the water from I-210.
A large number of law enforcement converged on the area to search.
Law enforcement located the woman. Police said at the time that she was not cooperating with law enforcement.
Cpl. Moss told KPLC Friday night that authorities were unsure what the object was, but searchers were scouring the area.
Pictures of the woman were circulated to the media, but it wasn't until they identified her through her fingerprints, that the woman was later identified.
According to the news release issued Saturday, police said all search efforts had been suspended, while the case remains under investigation. No charges have been filed at this time.
Stay with KPLC for the very latest on the investigation, including an update online and tonight on 7 News at Six.
