Kayden Powell receives junior agent badge almost 5 years after kidnapping

BELOIT — It’s been over four years since Kayden Powell was kidnapped by his aunt in 2014. And on Friday, Sept. 28, 2018, FBI Milwaukee shared that Powell’s future is bright!

Powell was only 6 days old when he was taken from his home in the Town of Beloit in the early morning hours of Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014. It wasn’t until the next day, Friday, Feb. 7, that he was found alive in West Branch, Iowa. Police found Powell in a tote bag swaddled in blankets just outside of a gas station.

Congratulations, Kayden!
