Authorities in Glendale, Arizona, are frantically searching for a 5-year-old girl who has been missing for two days.
According to The Associated Press, investigators are still on the look out for Jahessye Shockley. Police said they believe the little girl may have wandered out the front door of her home on Tuesday around 5 p.m. after her mother went to run an errand.
Jahessye’s three older siblings, who were also in the house at the time, were the last people to see her. The child was reported missing Tuesday as soon as her mother realized she was gone. Police issued an Amber Alert on Wednesday morning.
ABC15.com describes Jahessye as a 5-year-old Black girl, who stands about 3′ 5" and weighs 55 pounds. She has long black hair that was tied into a ponytail and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue jean shorts and pink flip-flops.
Authorities have received a number of tips on Jahessye’s whereabouts since Wednesday morning, but the biggest tip in the case was that a Black woman was seen putting a child, who fits Jahessya’s description, into a vehicle. The possible abductor is said to between 25 and 30 years old, weighing 120 pounds. She’s wearing her black hair in a bun and has brown eyes.
The woman, who was wearing a white tank top and jeans rolled up to mid-calf, was said to have left in a 1998-2000 4-door Chevy Malibu.
Police have gone door-to-door looking for Jahessye, repeatedly checking the homes of any sex offenders living in the surrounding area. K-9 units were used in hopes that the dogs could sniff out the girl’s scent.
Those believes they have seen Jahessye are advised to call (623) 930-HELP or (623) 930-4357.
