Baby Lyndon Albers: Baffling Abduction Leads To Busted Babysitter (photos)

Yesterday police arrested one of the 2-year-old girl’s former babysitters, Abigail Hanna, just hours after an older couple claimed they found the missing child sitting “naked” and abused on the side of a highway.

The toddler, who has a 4-year-old “unharmed” sibling, was also suffering from overexposure and a head injury, but displayed other signs of trauma, too, such as “cigarette burns” and a “shaved” scalp.

Her parents, Tim Albers and Joanie Albers, gave conflicting times for when each had last seen their child sleeping, so this is tentatively estimated to be between 2:00 a.m. and 4:15 a.m. on November 20th. They reported her gone a few hours later.

For yet undisclosed reasons, their 21 year-old ex sitter, Hanna, was immediately suspected in the baby’s disappearance, then taken into custody on multiple charges including breaking and entering, assault, kidnapping, and battery with a weapon.

no violent past for accused kidnapper/abuser Abigail 'Abi' Hannah

Shown in the above photo, Abigail Hanna reportedly has no prior criminal record to speak of, and those close to her are grappling today with the idea that she’d commit any violent crimes, especially one against a child.

Investigators have declined to provide the accused woman’s motive for allegedly abducting and battering Baby Lyndon Albers, indicating this morning that they’re still unsure of how the youngster actually went missing.

In the meantime, however, Hanna, who recently facebooked her engagement to a Nate Wolters of MA, is being jailed in lieu of bond. Her fiancé has since deleted his own Facebook account and other posts linking him to the suspect.

Prosecutors intend to arraign her in Newburyport District Court on several counts of child abduction and abuse as soon as Monday, they said, although their probe of the Albers abduction remains “active and ongoing.”

They’ve characterized the bizarre case as a “jigsaw puzzle” with many pieces still missing -- made all the more baffling because most child abductors are related to their victims, and, if not, are typically young men.
