The incident happened at about 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday when Savannah was abducted by her biological mother, who has been identified as 33-year-old Marquita Dupree. It happened when they were being driven by the child's foster mother.

Investigators say Savannah suffers from sickle-cell anemia and has been without her medication, which means she is in urgent need of life-saving medication. Dupree and the child were last seen in the area of Sanilac Street and Moross in Detroit.

It is unknown if the suspect is taking the child by foot, car or public transportation, but Dupree had indicated that she was planning to leave Detroit. It is unknown where Dupree, who has mental health issues, might be taking the child.

Dupree is described as a 33-year-old black female with black hair and brown eyes, standing 5 feet 6 inches tall. Savannah is an 11-month-old black female with brown hair and gray eyes. She is 1 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 18 pounds.

Anyone who sees Dupree or Savannah is urged to call 911 immediately, or call the Detroit Police Department's 9th Precinct at 313-596-1616 if you have any other information that could help investigators.
