Police hunt for 3-month-old girl who disappeared from her bed in the night


Police are hunting for three-month-old Arieanna Day, who disappeared from her bed in Roanoke, Virginia, at around 11pm TuesdayVirginia police have launched a hunt for a three-month-old girl whose family says she was abducted from her bed in the middle of the night.

Arieanna Day’s mother told police she put her baby to bed around 10pm Tuesday, and that when she returned an hour later the infant was gone.

Roanoke police who responded to reports of the alleged abduction said there were no signs of forced entry or that the child was taken by force. The residence was not locked at the time.

At a police conference Wednesday, Chief Tim Jones said: ‘This circumstance is unusual.

‘Someone out there knows what happened to this child. I am very concerned about the child’s life.’

Jones said Arieanna’s father arrived at the home shortly after the abduction was reported and said he did not have her.

Five other children were in the house at the time of Arieanna’s disappearance, but the infant was the only one taken.

Neighbors told police they saw a suspicious black vehicle at the home around the same time as the alleged abduction.

The baby’s grandmother Sophia Bryant told local news outlet WFXR: ‘I want justice. I want the baby found.’
