Medically fragile twins found safe hours after Levi's Call issued

Posted July 13

— A Levi's Call issued earlier Tuesday for 14-month-old twins Kaden and Kaleel Wilson was cancelled at about 9:30 p.m. after the boys and their mother, Ka'Miyah Wilson, were located in DeKalb County.

It was reported that Wilson left her residence with the children on Saturday, July 8, but left medical equipment that is necessary to sustain life for Kaden Wilson.

The twins were born premature and described as fragile, according to the Clayton County Police Department, while Kaden was described as medically fragile due to his required use of oxygen and need to be fed through a feeding tube.

"Kaden, Kaleel and Ka'Miyah Wilson have been located," a police spokeswoman said Tuesday night, hours after the Levi's Call was issued. "The vehicle that they were traveling in was located in Dekalb County. Ka'Miyah Wilson has been taken into custody on a warrant for Cruelty To Children in the 1st Degree.

"Kaleel and Kaden Wilson appeared to be in good health but have been transported to a local area hospital to be checked as a precautionary measure," the spokesman said in an email.

Clayton County police were called by the children's grandmother, who was concerned for their safety. She told officers that their mother had discontinued feeding Kaden Wilson the formula prescribed by a doctor via the feeding tube and has been feeding him a "smoothie concoction" using a syringe, which has caused Kaden to suffer significant weight loss.

Ka'Miyah Wilson left the residence with the children on Saturday, July 8, at approximately 12:35 a.m. and was last seen driving a black 2010 Nissan Altima. The Altima was spotted in DeKalb County Tuesday evening after an AMBER Alert was issued by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
