Police first alerted the public to the abduction two hours ago. The amber alert only came into effect a little less than an hour ago.
Jannah Jaffri is about four feet tall, with light brown, shoulder-length hair, and brown eyes. She was wearing a pink sweater, white tank top, grey leggings, navy blue coat and carrying a sparkly white unicorn backpack.
Her father, Soloman Jaffri, is a 25-year old man who measures 6'1". He has short brown hair and a tattoo that says “Jannah” on right arm.
He was wearing a navy blue dress coat and black cargo pants. He is not supposed to have access to the child
This case is chillingly reminiscent of anotherrecent case of child abduction. Last month, a girl was abducted by her father. After spending the afternoon with his daughter for the child's birthday, the father never returned her to her mother. Though he was located quickly, the child was later found dead.
Please stay alert to any sightings of this girl. Pray and hope that she is found safe. If you have any information contact 9-1-1.
