Indiana Police Issue Amber Alert for Four Missing Children

A gunman shot a man and held several people hostage for about nine hours Saturday before forcing a woman and her four children into a car and fleeing, police said.

Elkhart police who issued an Amber Alert said the children and their mother were believed to be in extreme danger. The oldest child has severe asthma and needs to use a ventilator every few hours but that device was not taken, police said in a statement released Saturday night.

Police were looking for Jerry D. White 30, who was believed to have abducted 31-year-old Kimberly N. Walker and the children after the shooting in the northern Indiana city about 15 miles west of South Bend that left a man in critical condition.

Details of Abduction:
Information on the children is as follows:

  1. Jaylan Walker, a 9 year old black male, 4’ tall 60 pounds, last seen wearing green pants and striped green shirt with a beige coat.
  2. Justin Walker, a 8 year old black male, 4’ tall 60 pounds, last seen wearing a navy blue fleece warm-up outfit and a blue coat.
  3. Kyara Walker, a 6 year old black female, 3’ tall 35 pounds, last seen wearing beige pants, a pink coat and blue shoes.
  4. Kayla Walker, a 16 month old black female, last seen wearing beige pants, a burgundy coat and a cream colored hat.

The children were last seen at 11:27 a.m. EST, at the time they were abducted and are believed to be in extreme danger. The Elkhart Police Department said the children were likely abducted by Jerry D. White, a 30 year old black male.

Jerry D. White is alleged to have shot one person just prior to abducting the children and also abducted the children’s mother, Kimberly N. Walker, a 31 year old black female, 5’6”, 105, last seen wearing jeans, a navy and light blue jacket and tennis shoes.

Jerry D. White fled the area of the abduction with the children and mother, as described, and is believed to be armed and dangerous.
