Father: Girlfriend kidnapped 2-year-old girl at Dunn gas station

Posted November 27, 2016

— Dunn police responded to Love's gas station Saturday around 9:40 p.m. in reference to the kidnapping of 2-year-old Jada Caldwell.

The child is described as a black female last seen wearing a black sweat suit and black Jordan sneakers. She is 2 feet four inches tall and weighs 50 pounds.

She may be with 33-year-old Mazda Dixon. Dixon is described as a black female with light skin and red hair. She was last seen wearing a purple hoodie, a long black overcoat and blue denim jeans. She is driving a dark silver Dodge Journey rental SUV.

Devonte Caldwell, the girl's father, told police that Dixon is his girlfriend. He said he left Jada in the car with Dixon while he went inside the convenience store.

"I think it was done out of spite -- she's done it before," said Caldwell.

Jada and her father were on their way to South Carolina to visit her mother, officials said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lt. Angela Hinson at the Dunn Police Department at 910-893-9111.

    something really isn't right with this whole story and he seemed more upset that she threw his luggage out and left him stranded in a strange place than her taking his child, I;m praying for the little girls safe return
