Mom in Custody Battle, Crashes Car, Runs into Woods with Child

July 17th, 2017 by

Around 6:30, Saturday evening, a call came in to the Drew County Sheriffs Department reporting a disturbance at a home in near the Green Hill area.

As a deputy was nearing the area, he noticed the vehicle that had reportedly left the scene, and attempted to perform a traffic stop on it.

The vehicle refused to stop. When the deputy was made aware that there was likely a child inside, he let the car go, believing he knew who the driver was.

According to Sheriff Mark Gober, approximately 20 minutes later, an AG&F game warden saw a vehicle matching the description of the gold Chevy Cobalt, wrecked and abandoned on the gravel section of Old Warren Road.

Gober, deputies, auxiliaries and 4 Game & Fish officers began searching the woods for the 27-year-old woman and the young child.

A passing driver offered to let the officers use his 4-wheeler to search for the fleeing mom and missing child,  which lead to them being safely recovered, a few minutes before 8 PM.

As the child’s father was being reunited with the infant, a family member told MLive that an order of protection had recently been overturned by the judge in their case, and the child was delivered into the mother’s custody.

After Amber Nowlin’s actions, Saturday, that order of protection may need to be reinstated, as well as expanded to protect the child.

Nowlin is expected to be charged with fleeing, endangering the welfare of the child, and leaving the scene of an accident.

As of 10 PM, Saturday evening, she was still being held in the Drew County Jail.
