A nightmare turned reality for an Omaha woman last night. Yotanda Lewis had just finished grocery shopping at the Bakers Supermarket on north 30th Street and had put her twin 8 month old daughters in their car seats. Lewis then was putting groceries inside her car when a man jumped inside and took off.
Lewis says she started screaming that her babies were in that car and she was hoping that someone would hear her. She says so many worries went through her head including his erratic driving would injure the girls or they would end up being molested or killed.
Law enforcement issued an Amber Alert and friends and family started in the search. Lewis’ nephew found her vehicle around 9:30 p.m. near 33rd and Hartman Avenue. The girls were safe inside. Police continue to search for the suspect.
