PARAGOULD, Ark. -- Bond was set Wednesday for a Greene County woman charged in aiding the kidnapping of her 5-year-old granddaughter.

A Paragould judge set a cash bond for Edith Walker at $250,000.

Authorities say Walker assisted Walter Berlet Mitchell last week when he allegedly broke into the home of Walker's daughter, Valery Greer, and kidnapped Jewel Mitchell, his non-custodial daughter.

The girl and her father are believed to be in the Houston, Texas, area.
