ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Police are asking the public to help locate a vehicle related to a yellow alert. You’re looking for a black Chevrolet Malibu with temporary plates that expire in September 2022. The warning was issued for St. Louis City and County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 10-month-old Samiyah Branscomb is missing. She was wrapped in a pink blanket. The baby is described as a black woman with hand and wrist deformities. She is 1’10” tall and weighs 13 pounds.
The baby was taken to Children’s Hospital at Kingshighway opposite Forest Park in critical condition for neglect and a protective order was issued. Jayana Johnson, 24, left the hospital with Samiyah on Wednesday afternoon against the doctor’s orders. She refuses to bring the child back, and Samiyah’s life could be in danger if she doesn’t receive medical attention.
Johnson is described as a black woman, 5’6″ tall and last seen in a gray sweatshirt, black pants, and black and white shoes.
Yellow alerts are only issued in the most serious cases of child abduction. The system saved lives. Call 911 if you have any information.
