UPDATE: Emma Grace Kennedy treated and released; father charged

(UPDATE POSTED AT 4 P.M.) Seven-month-old Emma Grace Kennedy has been treated and released from Randolph Health in Asheboro, N.C. She is in the custody of her family.

Her father, Carl Ray Kennedy, has been arrested and is being held in the Randolph County, N.C., Jail on a fugitive from justice warrant. He is awaiting extradition to Danville. When he arrives in Danville, Danville Police will serve him with warrants for domestic assault and abduction.

Danville Police, working with local, state and federal law enforcement partners, had established a call center in Danville.

A team including officers from the Danville Police Department, FBI, Randleman Police Department, Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Secret Service converged on the house and arrested Kennedy without incident.

The 2007 Suzuki was located at the residence, still bearing a N.C. license with the tag number FAA-1873. The vehicle had been spray painted black.

Danville Police would like to thank its law enforcement partners and the public for their assistance in the arrest of Carl Ray Kennedy and the safe return of Emma Grace Kennedy.
