NEW ORLEANS — Two out of the three children who were reportedly kidnapped by sisters in New Orleans have been found, but a third teenager remains missing, and the alleged kidnappers are still at large.

According to NOPD, the 4-year-old and the 8-year-old have been found safe and reunited with their mothers. The 15-year-old is still believed to be with Denisha and Denise Hilton.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call (504) 658-6050 or call anonymously to Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111 or toll free at 1-877-903-7867.

Here’s the original story: 

The NOPD is looking for two women accused of kidnapping three children in the Holy Cross neighborhood.

The person who reported the kidnappings said she dropped her 4-year-old daughter and 15-year-old sister off at a home in the 5100 block of Douglas Street around 2 p.m. on July 6 for babysitting, according to the NOPD.

The 15-year-old was being supervised at the house by another sister, 24-year-old Denisha Hilton.

The mother of the 4-year-old contacted the 15-year-old around 9 a.m. on July 7, but was told Denisha Hilton and her 25-year-old sister Denise Hilton would return the child later on in the day, after they finished running errands.

The child’s mother was later told that the child and the teen would not be returned, and that they were safe, but not at the Douglas Street home.

The mother was not told where the two children were, according to the NOPD.

Since that time, the 4-year-old, 15-year-old, and both Hilton sisters have not been seen or heard from.

Another child, an 8-year-old, is also missing and has not been returned to their legal guardian.

Denisha Hilton and Denise Hilton are both wanted on three counts of simple kidnapping.
