MISSING BROOKLYN TOT HOME SAFE
Sharon Cooper was charged with two counts of unlawful imprisonment and one count of child endangerment and a Brooklyn toddler who was missing for three days was returned to her overjoyed mom yesterday. The charges could land the babysitter a year in prison. Elisa Owens, the child's mother, had pleaded to Cooper for the safe
return of her 2 year old daughter, Kenya Banks. Cooper, a family friend for 20 years, came over to Owens' Coney Island apartment to baby-sit Kenya on Tuesday morning. Owens went out for a job interview. When she returned that night, the apartment was empty -- both Cooper and Kenya were missing. Owens waited until Thursday to call police in the hopes they would return on their own.
