Myia Cole - Jailed After Baby In Car Seat Found Upside Down In Middle Of Road

Tulsa, Oklahoma (The Weekly Vice) - Myia Natrice Cole, a 30-year-old Tulsa woman was jailed Saturday after she allegedly left her 11-month-old child in the middle of the street, face down in a car seat.

According to Tulsa Police, Cole and the child's father, Clyde Jackson, reported the child missing around 9:30 p.m. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the parents to be extremely intoxicated, and unable to tell the officer where their child was last seen.

Officers located a witness who claimed that she had picked Cole up earlier in the evening. The witness then directed officers to that location. When officers arrived at that location around midnight, they found a car seat lying face down in the middle of the street. When officers up-righted the car seat, they discovered that the child was still strapped inside.

Investigators say the child was a mile and a half away from Cole's residence. The child had been sitting in the summer heat for nearly 3 hours and was dehydrated but otherwise unharmed. The child is now in the custody of the Department of Human Services.

Jackson was not apprehended, but had just been released from jail on Friday in an unrelated case.

Cole was booked into the Tulsa County Jail and charged with child endangerment. She is currently being held in lieu of a $25,000 bond. She also had active warrants for her arrest for failing to pay court costs totaling $7,965.34 in three other felony cases, including charges of possession of paraphernalia, failure to comply, and escape from a penal institution. She also had a warrant in regards to a misdemeanor public drunkenness.
