LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Joshua Yeager, 24, is believed to have kidnapped his biological daughter, 2-year-old Jaylynn Yeager.
Officers recovered a car Yeager allegedly stole two weeks ago at a Circle K gas station in Louisville. The car’s owner, Jamie Howard, called Yeager while she was doing an interview with WHAS11.
“What are you doing?” Howard said when Yeager answered.
He did not say where he was, and would not even mention his daughter. Yeager explained where Howard could find her car, and then apologized.
“I’m nervous. I’m shocked,” Howard said. “I want this little girl home.”
Howard said she is not close to Yeager, and explained she only knew him because he spent time at a nearby apartment.
“He’s a drug addict. He needs help,” she said. “I don’t know why he took his daughter. I know he loves his kids, but this is not the right way to do it.”
Jaylynn’s mother said she has not seen her daughter in several days. If you have information, police ask you call 571-LMPD
