SAN AUGUSTINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A San Augustine woman charged with kidnapping has been released from jail.

Krystle Tanner, 26, has been in custody since her arraignment in March.

The charges stem from a 2004 abduction of a then 8-month-old baby in which Tanner was babysitting. Tanner allegedly fled with the baby and for 8 years, their whereabouts were unknown.

Last August, CPS was called out to Tanner's residence after the agency received a call from someone claiming Tanner and her boyfriend was neglecting a newborn baby. The caller then told officials that they remembered a boy, approximately 8 years of age, living in the home as well.

Tanner's court-appointed attorney, Donovan Dudinsky, filed a motion in district court for bond reduction, according to San Augustine Chief Deputy Gary Cunningham.

The judge granted the motion and reduced the bond from $250,000 to $25,000 in that Tanner must visit an adult probation officer weekly.

Cunningham said Tanner was not a flight risk.

Cunningham revealed that Tanner is also around 6 months pregnant, and she was unable to seek appropriate care locally, which placed a practical burden on the Sheriff's office.

Her mother, Gloria Walker, was also arraigned on kidnapping charges.

She remains in custody at the San Augustine County Jail.
