KPD Investigating a Possible Kidnapping

Killeen Police investigating a possible kidnapping of male toddler.

Officers were notified of a missing 3 year old male toddler who was taken by a female and a male at 11:59pm, on Saturday, February 11, 2017.  Upon the officer’s arrival, they were told that a black female, Lanae Hoskins and a black male, James Harris, were at the residence, 4807 Golden Gate Drive, when they stole an undisclosed amount of money and a vehicle at gun point, fleeing from the residence with the child, Jamal Powell.

Hoskins and Harris drove off with Jamal, in a 2015 gray Dodge Charger displaying Indiana license plates.  The vehicle is described to have dark tint windows, stock rims and minimal damage to the right front driver and passenger doors.  The legal guardian for Jamal believes Hoskins and Harris possibly headed to an unknown location in Louisiana.
