Jefferson City police got an anonymous tip around 1 p.m. Friday that 2-year-old Colton Dominquez and his mom, Billie Jo Linhart, were in Omaha. Jefferson City police told Omaha police who went to the location and took custody of the child around 2:15 p.m. Police are working to return Colton back to his legal guardian.
Omaha police took Linhart into custody, and Jefferson City police said she will be transported to the Cole County Jail at a later date.
