Long County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Robert Berry said that kidnapping suspect Heather Gohn, 27, turned herself in to the sheriff’s office Saturday.

The sheriff’s office received several calls Friday from people claiming to have seen Gohn at Beaver Hill Mobile Home Park in Long County, Berry said. Sheriff’s office deputies went to the mobile home park Saturday but could not find the woman.

At about 2:30 p.m. Saturday, the department received a call from a woman who claimed to be Gohn. She said she wanted to turn herself in. The chief deputy said that a unit from the sheriff’s office went to the mobile home park, where they found Gohn and arrested her.

In addition to charges of kidnapping and burglary, which were filed through the Ludowici Police Department, Gohn now faces an additional charge of felony escape.

Last Tuesday, Gohn was arrested by the LPD and charged with kidnapping her 4-year-old son. As she awaited transport on Wednesday from the sheriff’s office to the Brantley County Jail, Gohn escaped from authorities. Berry said she currently is incarcerated in the Brantley County Jail.
