MURFREESBORO, N.C.—A Murfreesboro woman has been accused of kidnapping her 3-year-old son from his home in Florida.

Noah Elsesser, who allegedly went missing on Feb. 4, was found Friday in Murfreesboro.

His mother, Jaime Sicoli, 27, of 407 E. Main St., is being held without bond in the Hertford County Jail where she awaits extradition to Tarpon Springs, Fla. A felony warrant was issued for Sicoli on March 20 by the Tarpon Springs Police.

The child’s father has legal custody of Noah.

“We received a tip that a missing child from Florida was living here,” said Murfreesboro Police Chief Darrell Rowe. “We acted immediately after receiving that tip and set up surveillance. Shortly thereafter we spotted the mother that was listed as wanted for non-custodial abduction.”

Police approached Sicoli at a local business at 4:30 p.m. After police informed her of the information they had, she accompanied them to her home, where Noah was found.

“The child was in good health … he had been taken well care of,” Rowe said.

Hertford County Child Protective Services was contacted, and the child was placed in the agency’s care. The child’s father was en route from Florida to get his son.

“We contacted the Tarpon Springs Police to inform them of what took place here in Murfreesboro and that the child was OK,” Rowe said.
