FATHER ARRESTED: Iowa Kidnapping Case


The Iowa father accused of kidnapping his daughter and prompting an Amber Alert is behind bars.

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office says the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation arrested Sean Shannon Sunday morning in Cedar Rapids. He’s been charged with third degree kidnapping.

Authorities say Shannon abducted his 11-year-old daughter Kiley from her Shellsburg home Thursday night. They say he also assaulted Kiley’s half-brother who is not related to Shannon.

Authorities issued an Amber Alert Friday night to find Kiley. Less than an hour later officials located her in Cedar Rapids. She’s was uninjured.

Sean Shannon is being held in the Benton County Jail and is making his first court appearance Monday.
