HOUSTON  — A Texas mother whose infant son vanished eight years ago will soon be reunited with him, after authorities found the boy living with his former babysitter and her family in another part of the state.

Miguel Morin disappeared in late 2004, when he was just 8 months old.

His mother told Houston television station KPRC the two may be reunited later this week. Authorities said she must first undergo a DNA test, even though they’re sure of his identity.

“I want to hold him in my arms and let him know who I am,” said Auboni Champion-Morin, who lives in Houston. “I hope he can feel the same thing I feel for him.”

The former babysitter, 26-year-old Krystle Rochelle Tanner, was arrested Monday on a kidnapping charge. She was being held in jail in San Augustine, a community about 140 miles northeast of Houston.

The Texas Department of Family Protective Services said Thursday that Miguel, now 8 years old, will remain at a foster home in the Houston area while investigators sort out his complicated case.

An emergency court hearing was scheduled for later in the day. His mother was expected to appear and perhaps to testify.

Tanner, who was a friend of Champion-Morin’s and Miguel’s godmother, was a suspect after the boy disappeared. Tanner’s relatives in Houston told police that she and the infant had vanished. The case went cold and was closed in 2006, said Chief Deputy Gary Cunningham of the San Augustine Sheriff’s Department.
