LAUREL, Mississippi (AP) — Police say an Ohio woman killed a child in Mississippi and is on the run with two other children who may be in danger.
Mississippi and Louisiana authorities say in statements that they’re searching for 33-year-old Latina Marie Oates of Powell, Ohio.
The Hattiesburg American reports a child was found dead on Tuesday at a hotel in Laurel, Mississippi, after Oates left.
Police issued a first-degree murder warrant for Oates.
Video shows Oates leaving Tuesday with 9-year-old Mark Anthony Oates and 6-year-old Justin Lamar Oates.
Officers say the children are “in imminent danger.”
The Louisiana State Police believes Oates traveled to New Orleans.
