COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – An Amber Alert in Ohio has been canceled, and Columbus police believe they have located the body of 5-year-old Darnell Taylor in a sewage drain.

Chief Elaine Bryant said Friday morning that police located what they believe is Taylor’s body shortly after 1 a.m. in the 1000 block of Marsdale Avenue on Columbus’ southwest side.

They came to search there after police in the Cleveland suburb of Brooklyn arrested Amber Alert suspect Pammy Maye, 48. Brooklyn police were called Thursday night after a person saw a woman in a nightgown walking around a building in the 4000 block of Tiedeman Highway.

That location is behind the Parkview Estates apartment complex, where his vehicle was found Wednesday night. Officers and a K9 unit conducted a search of the apartment complex that night.

Once in custody, Maye provided information about the location of Taylor’s body, Bryant said.

“This is not the outcome we wanted,” Bryant said, “but we will make sure we do everything we can to get justice for Darnell.”

Maye is being treated at a Cleveland-area hospital and will be returned to Franklin County, where she will face a murder charge, Bryant said.

The Amber Alert was issued Wednesday at 5:10 a.m., and initial reports believed Maye had taken Taylor from a south Columbus home in the 900 block of Reeb Avenue, about 5 miles from where the Taylor’s body.

During a 911 call, Maye’s husband told dispatchers that his wife said she killed Taylor. Before she finished the call, Maye fled the house. Her vehicle was recovered hours later in Brooklyn with no sign of her or Taylor.

The Mays had been Taylor’s legal guardians since May.
