Three children abducted in Nebraska carjacking found with frostbite

GRAND ISLAND, Nebraska (AP) — Two suspects stole an SUV while they were indoors in Nebraska on Sunday as three young children were being treated for frostbite, police said.

Around 3 a.m. Sunday, when temperatures were around freezing, a man reported the theft of a 2012 Chevrolet Traverse with three children in it, Grand Island Police said. After an 18-year-old man and his 17-year-old boy were arrested in his SUV, authorities said he was five years old inside his second car reportedly stolen in Kearney around 5 a.m. and he found a one-year-old boy.

About 30 minutes later, the baby was found on the doorstep of a Hall County farmhouse. All three children had suspected hypothermia and frostbite.

Before the officers knew about the children, Travers was caught in a police chase. Investigators eventually tracked Travers to the neighboring Buffalo County countryside and arrested the suspect.

Teens face a variety of charges, including kidnapping and intentional child abuse.
