The sheriff’s office said Brooks has been hiding from authorities for several weeks after a District Court Judge issued a custody order for her in late December 2016. A criminal arrest warrant was issued against her in January 2017 for felony abduction of a child. 

Brooks is booked into the Union County Jail and bond is pending.
