Panama: Abduction suspect captured in Bonifay



BONIFAY – The suspect in the parental abduction of a two-year-old girl is now in custody.

The Panama City Police Department asked area residents to be alert after the child was taken from her mother’s vehicle in Bay County by Matthew Pemberton around 7:30 Monday morning.

At that time, Pemberton had last been spotted traveling westbound on 23rd Street in Panama City, and was believed to be headed for Holmes or Washington County.




Just hours later, Pemberton was arrested by U.S. Marshals at the Express Lane convenience store in Bonifay.
