A missing child case in Houston has been solved by Texas authorities. The infant who vanished 8 years ago will be reunited with his mother after police arrested the child's former babysitter for kidnapping him.

Krystle Rochelle Tanner, 26, is being held without bond in a San Augustine jail. The now 8-year-old boy will be reunited with his mother, Auboni Champion-Morin, who hasn't seen her son since he was 8-months-old.

"I want to hold him in my arms and let him know who I am," said Champion-Morin, who lives in Houston. "I hope he can feel the same thing I feel for him." But before the reunion happens, Champion-Morin will have to undergo a DNA test to prove the boy is her son, even though authorities know it's him.

Police were led to Tanner last Summer after child welfare investigators in San Augustine County received a complaint that a mother was neglecting her two children. But when officials followed up on the complaint, they couldn't locate the older boy.

Tanner initially told police she was keeping the boy for a woman she had met in a park, but she didn't know where he was. Sheriff's deputies had no records for the boy and little information to work with, according to USA Today.

The sheriff's were unaware of the missing baby case in Houston. That's because police closed the missing child case in 2006 after they were unable to locate Tanner or the baby, and the case went cold.

Chief Deputy Gary Cunningham of the San Augustine Sheriff's Department (pictured above) said the case was closed in 2006, after relatives of Tanner told them she vanished with the boy in 2004 and they had not heard from her.
