The suspect and the child are traveling in a 2013 maroon or brown Ford Fusion with Florida license plate GYXL63. They were last seen driving southbound on Northwest 24 Avenue, but it is unknown where Rogers might be taking the child.

Rogers is described as a 27-year-old black male with black hair and brown eyes, standing 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing about 265 pounds. It was not immediately disclosed what relationship, if any, the suspect has to the child.
