• Police: 'Kidnapped' foster children returned, mom at-large

    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Missing Persons Unit is asking the public to be on the lookout for an East Hills woman who is wanted for kidnapping her three biological daughters.

    Police said Toy Nixon-McCray, 33, arrived at her daughters’ foster parent's home around 2 p.m. Monday in East Liberty and removed the children ages 14, 5 and 6 months. 

    According to Pittsburgh police Cmdr. RaShall Brackney, the foster parents know the suspect's family and agreed to take in the children so they wouldn't be separated after they were removed from the suspect's care because her home was in poor condition.

    “She was visiting the family and became extremely upset about the foster care process and took the children,” said Brackney.

    It is believed that Nixon-McCray got into a green SUV that was possibly used as a jitney.

    Nixon-McCray’s attorney said late Monday afternoon that the three children were returned, but Nixon-McCray remained missing.

    "(We're) Absolutely relieved that the kids are safe. They seem to be happy and healthy, and now they are in the placement of Children and Youth Services," said Brackney.

    Jones said Tuesday that he was no longer Nixon-McCray's attorney.

    Meanwhile, police have continued to attempt to contact Nixon-McCray without success.
