John Davis, father of Nicholas Harbison's girlfriend Misty Davis, told AMW that at 4:30 am on Monday July 24, his doorbell rang. Miraculously, there was his 2-year-old granddaughter in the arms of 74-year-old Joyce Harbison, the stepmother of fugitive Nicholas Harbison.
The Davis family is overjoyed that their granddaughter Kelsie is home safe, but still fear for the life of their daughter, Misty, who was last seen leaving with Nicolas Harbison on the morning of July 18, 2006. Indiana State Police have charged Harbison with murdering three people in a remote cornfield, and with attempting to kill a fourth person.
Investigators say Joyce Harbison told them she was with the fugitive and his girlfriend, Misty Davis
on Saturday July 22 in a hotel room watching America's Most Wanted.
She claimed that she did not know Harbison was on the run from murder charges until they saw his picture come up on AMW's 15 Seconds of Shame.
However, Joyce Harbison was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with assisting a criminal and false informing. Indiana authorities say she paid for hotel rooms whie on the run with her stepson and even used an alias to check in.
