Amber Alert canceled: child found, suspect arrested

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - An Amber Alert has been canceled for a 5 month old baby girl from West Ashley.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office says the child's father, Corey Heyward, took the baby, Cori'anna Heyward, from the McDonalds on Magwood Drive in West Ashley early this morning but has since turned himself in along with the baby.

Deputies say Heyward turned himself in at 9:30 am Wednesday. He is in custody and has been charged with parental interference.

Heyward will have a bond hearing Thursday evening.

Charleston County Sheriff's Office says Corey Heyward has had past run-ins with the law. Investigators say Corey and his brother Robert Heyward were both suspects in a recording studio shooting in Hollywood last April.
