A Westminster woman who has been reported missing bought a train ticket for Birmingham, Ala., and stayed at a hotel there with her 3-year-old son, police said yesterday.
Rhonda Kay Stevenson, 39, of the 2000 block of Old Washington Road and her son, Thomas Jackson Stevenson, stayed at the hotel in Birmingham on Jan. 26 and took a cab to a shopping mall in Hoover, Ala., the next morning, state police in Westminster said.
The woman and the boy had left home Jan. 25 purportedly to visit relatives in northeast Pennsylvania, police said. Her husband, William Stevenson, reported them missing when she failed to arrive there, according to police.
Investigators want to find the woman because she left with the child and without her prescription medication, said Detective Sgt. Andrew G. Winner of the state police in Westminster.
He said her red 2000 Chrysler Voyager minivan was found last weekend at Pennsylvania Station in Baltimore. Stevenson is not know to have any relatives in Birmingham, Winner said. The investigation is continuing.
