Make that a family of 6 and the youngest one was transported to Rainbows. They know who she is as she was chased all the way down Rt 2 into Cleveland and was able to trace the owner of the vehicle. She was supposed to turn herself in on Christmas nite and didn't and a warrant is going to be issued.
