SELMA, AL (WSFA) -

Loraine Hale Flennory arrived at the Selma Police Department on Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. to be processed for interfering with custody charges.

Flennory was wanted for the parental kidnapping of her daughter, 10-year-old Shadeka Sims, which occurred on July 4.

Selma Police detectives left early Tuesday morning for Panama City, FL to extradite Flennory back to Selma.

Police say that Sims was found with her mother in Panama City, Florida on Thursday. They were both located at Flennory's residence located in the 1900 block of Mack Lewis Drive in Panama City.

Panama City Police took the girl and her mother into custody. Flennory was arrested on a warrant through the Selma Police department for Interference with custody which is a Class C felony.

The kidnapping case started when Selma Police Officers responded to the Rangedale Apartment complex on Saturday at 6:19 p.m. in reference to the parental abduction of Sims by her biological mother, Loraine Flennory.

The call was made by Shakeda's father and grandmother, who have court ordered custody of Shadeka.

The grandmother advised officers that Shadeka was allowed to go with her mother to a family reunion on July 4 in Selma.

When the father and grandmother attempted to make contact with Flennory at 10 p.m. on July 4, she would not return their phone calls.

When the father and grandmother finally received word of Shadeka's whereabouts, they were told that Flennory left word that she was not bringing Shadeka back.

No bond has been set for Flennory and additional charges maybe pending.

Police say that they received information concerning the whereabouts of Sims and Flennory through numerous calls from concerned citizens. They would like to express their thanks to all citizens who called and gave tips on the possible whereabouts of Sims.
