EDMOND, Oklahoma -- An Edmond elementary school student who was taken from her school in the middle of the day by her mother, who does not have custody of the child, is not at school again today.
According to a police report, 8-year-old Dylana Smith was taken from the Ida Freeman Elementary School Friday afternoon. School surveillance video shows a faint figure of Smith in the background walking along the back walls of the gym headed for an open door. She never showed up to her classroom after having class in the gym. The legal guardian and the girl's aunt, Arnetta Greasham, told police she believes the girl's mother, Dominic Smith, may have taken the child from school because she was not happy about Greasham having custody of her daughter.
Dominic Smith was released from the Oklahoma County jail several days ago. When police tried to contact her, the mother told an officer she was in the Target store in Norman and hung up.
