NEW INFO: Martin County Deputies: Child Abducted By Mom

Authorities are looking for a mother who is accused of taking her four-year daughter this past week.

Martin County deputies say Alivia Jackson was taken on Wednesday by her mother, Justine Jackson. Deputies say the mother took the child from a family member. They say custody had not yet been established, so on Friday a judge honored the father's request to get emergency sole custody of the child.

The little girl has brown hair, blue eyes, weighs 25 pounds and is 3 feet tall. She has a birthmark on the upper left side of her chest.

Deputies say the child is missing from Everetts and the two may still be in North Carolina, or possibly in the Pensacola, Florida or New Hampshire area. The mother is driving a 1999 dark green Ford Contour sedan.

The 24-year-old Jackson has brown hair, brown eyes, 5' tall and weighs 150 pounds.

At first,deputies say they obtained a felony warrant for parent child abduction against the woman. But now say they charges have been dropped and that this is a civil child custody issue.

Anyone with information on the child or mother should call the Martin County Sheriff's Office at 252-789-4500.

    Oh so he actually has a child he cares about what about the other one that was strung up and down the road with a can't say enough words and he was in Florida not to concerned. This child has went through alot. This little girl I don't know however if her mom was strong enough to run with her then more than likely she is strong enough to take care of her.

    Depending on who the Martin County judge was who was going to hear the case, I might run too.

      I am also a friend of Justine and she has always told me that her mom was the cause of her problems, never be there for her, I have seen her cried after getting off the phone with her the way her mom talk to her. I believe she could be a good mom, but the way she said she was raised she didnt know how!!!

    Justine is a great mother. Most or all the people commenting on this page are good friends withTravis. They are saying what Travis wants them to say. Justine was trying to protect herself and her child. Justine is so good with Alivia, and Alivia loves her very much.

      if she is so good with alivia why did she move so far from her 5 months ago? she left that child and never looked back? justine means well but needs help from problems she told me of her childhood. if i had her mother as my own i would understand why she is the way she is. its truly sad! her mother should be ashamed!!

    Why is all about the WOMAN there are alot of men in the same situation, who is out there to help them?? Nobody wants to hear thier stories of abuse from their spouses or maybe just because they don't put on the tears for people. I guess they thing whats the use, everybody always believes the woman. It works both ways!!

    well apparently you dont know the facts saying she was scared for her life because there was no reason for her to fear for her know ppl do lie and seems she has been proven to lie to officials and so social services and they gave all rights to the father , thank God, Alivia is in safe hands with her father and maybe the mother can seek help for her problems and become a better parent for her childs sake!

      If she was afraid for her life why did she always come back? She lived 12 hours away why come back? And the only charges that have been filed are against her. Its public record. The only danger she faced was from herself. I found record from DSS that she tried to harm herself and had to be committed.

        keep digging you will find records of a restraining order that was taken out on him and then dropped as most battered wives do. Look that up for facts.

          that order was dropped because one the woman never showed up and 2 they pulled the tapes from the gas station that showed the exact opposite story that was told from that women... so you please keep on going your making yourself look amazing

          that restraining order that you are talking about that was dropped was dropped because Justine chose not to show up and a detective from the Cumberland county court house pulled the tapes from the Murphey's gas station that justine said it happened at and the tapes told a complete different story. And if she would have showed up to court they would have gotten her on multiple counts of perjury.

      Afriad for her life? They have been legally separated since September of last year and she chose to move to Florida. If she was so afraid of him then why did she try to move to martin county where the father and child live? Why not stay in Florida!!!

    As a mother my heart goes out to the child that was subject to being taken from the father that has cared for her, her entire life. I know first hand that the so called mother has left numerous times and didn't even care to call and check on this precious child. She just comes and goes as she wants. The cases against her are public record and DSS deemed her an unfit mother due to reported drug problems and hospital visits. It saddens me that anyone would put their child through something so dangerous. When you have no license, no car, no job and no home then you should love your child enough to leave them where they are being cared for not take them to a womens shelter!

    Wow people really amaze me, I understand that you might not know the entire situation but this was a beautiful, loving, wonderful little girls life at risk, instead of putting all of your hateful comments just keep your mouth shut, if you don't want to help then don't but all of this was unnecessary and so disrespectful to the family!! This proves the power of prayer and god because that beautiful baby is now safe at home where she belongs!! It is very sad that the parents that care for her everyday and done everything they could to get their daughter back have to be subject to the crude people in this world and when their judgement day comes all I can say is god have mercy on your soul!! for all of you that helped share the information and gave your support and prayers I want to say thank you, I am very close with this family and I know first hand how much all of it really ment to them!! GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!
