UPDATE DIRECTLY FROM U.S. MARSHALS: Concerning the Parental Kidnapping case against twenty-nine year old Laney Smith (AKA: Laney Wyble) who kidnapped her seven-year-old child, Macey;
the two were located and arrested in Sweetwater, Montana attempting to cross into Canada. Initial reports suggest that they did in-fact make it into Canada, but the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) was able to detect Laney’s fugitive status and escort her back into the custody of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Laney has been arrested pursuant to Simple Kidnapping charges brought by the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office and Macey will be placed in Montana’s Child and Family Services Division.
Older updates in the case:
U.S. Marshals in Louisiana need your help locating a woman wanted for kidnapping. Authorities say Laney Smith abducted her daughter, Macey, and fled the state of Louisiana on February 5, 2012. This was the date Macey’s father, Shane, was granted full custody.
There is urgency to locate Macey in this case because Marshals say she has a serious medical condition that needs to be treated and if it goes untreated, Macey could die.
Marshals believe Laney Smith is traveling with her boyfriend, Cody Wyble and they were tracked to Little Rock, Arkansas a few weeks ago. Smith used a U-haul to take her things and her vehicle to Little Rock. That is where investigators say she dropped off the truck and drove away in her 2004 red Nissan Sentra (Louisiana tags: NXK 118).
A warrant was issued for Smith’s arrest on February 28, 2012. She stands 5’4” and weighs about 125 pounds. Smith has brown eyes and blonde hair.
