Mass murder survivor offers $10,000 reward while searching for kidnapped Ohio baby

A 2019 mass shooting survivor is offering a $10,000 reward in search of an Ohio twin baby who was abducted in a car theft and is now considered a victim of kidnapping by police.

As the search for 5-month-old Kason Thomass enters its fourth day on Thursday, Dion Green, who survived the 2019 mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, that took her father’s life, has determined the reward for the baby’s safe return.

“I hope and pray that this baby is found alive and we can take him home to his mother,” Green announced the award in a Facebook post Wednesday.

On August 4, 2019, while Green was out with his father, Derrick Fudge, in Dayton’s Oregon Territory, a 24-year-old man staged a gunshot that killed nine people and injured dozens, including Fudge. After the massacre, Green founded the Fudge Foundation to help those directly and indirectly affected by mass murder, violence, human trafficking, domestic abuse, and other forms of trauma.

Nalah Jackson, a suspect in Kason Thomass’ disappearance, was videotaped at a gas station in Huber Heights, Ohio.

“My main concern is the kids,” Green told ABC affiliate station WSYS in Columbus. “I just want to get the baby and make sure we get her home safely.”

The search for Kason, who was last seen wearing a brown jumpsuit, was launched Monday night after he and his twin brother Kyair went missing after a homeless woman allegedly stole her mother’s car. Police said the twins were in the vehicle as their mother drove away to take food orders.

Kyair Thomass was found abandoned at Dayton International Airport, more than 70 miles from Columbus, at around 4:40 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Police identified 24-year-old Nalah Jackson as the suspected car thief, and investigators said they believed Kason was still in his possession.

Columbus police officials said Wednesday that Jackson, Kason, or the stolen 2010 Honda Accord had not been seen new, as security cameras caught Jackson allegedly leaving Kyair in his car seat in a parking lot at Dayton airport.

Jackson was charged with kidnapping twice.

At a news conference Tuesday, Dayton Police Chief Elaine Bryant made a desperate plea to Jackson to deliver the baby safely, saying, “We beg you to return Kason.”

The FBI assists the search for the suspect and Kason by providing personnel and technology.

Bryant said the incident occurred around 9:45 p.m. on Monday, when Kyair and Kason were alone in the Honda Accord, when their mother ran off after stopping by the Donatos Pizza restaurant in northeast Columbus’s Short North Arts District to pick up a Door Dash order.

Police said your mother’s car was stolen shortly after she entered the restaurant. When police turned to look at his car from inside the restaurant, they realized that he was leaving with his twins.

Bryant said witnesses told police that Jackson was sitting in the restaurant when the mother walked in.
