Lisa Santiago has turned herself into law enforcement in Pennsylvania. Jayliah Thompson is now in the custody of child services.


The Port Orange Police Department is looking for a missing 5-year-old girl who was last seen with her mother who does not have custody.

Police say on Monday, a witness saw 5-year-old Jayliah Marilis Thompson get into a vehicle with her mother, Lisa Santiago.
