Woman charged with child abductions has history of mental issues

A woman with a history of mental issues was charged yesterday with the abductions of four young boys.

De’Edra Gibson was remanded to the Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre for psychiatric evaluation.

Gibson, 29, appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney and was charged with the February 16 abduction of Shavar Bain, 3; the March 6 abduction of Tyvon Armbrister, 8; the March 7 abduction of Jdakito Sejour, 8, and the March 29 abduction of Sanchin Henry, 8.

She was not required to enter a plea.

Gibson’s lawyer, Howard Thompson, told the court she had a history of mental health issues and had last year been treated at Brookdale University Hospital.

Based on Thompson’s claims, McKinney remanded Gibson to SRC until May 13.
