On Thursday, Jan. 12, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation announced agents arrested 31-year-old Alysia Adams on two counts of child neglect in connection with the two sisters who were in her and her husband's care. The 5-year-old girl was reportedly located outside Adams' home in Cyril on Tuesday, Jan. 10. The postal carrier who found her alerted police, and that's when the search for Athena Brownfield began.
Also on Thursday, Alysia's husband, Ivon Adams, was taken into custody in Arizona. He is reportedly in custody at the Maricopa County Jail and is waiting to be extradited back to Oklahoma.
