The incident happened at about 8:25 p.m. PT on Tuesday when Michael was visiting Madilyn and her mother at the Residence Inn in Mountain View. At some point during the visit, an argument between Madilyn’s mother and Wallin ensued, after which Michael drove off with Madilyn on his lap.

"This caused Madilyn’s mother to be dragged by the car a short distance before she was able to break free. Fortunately, she was not seriously injured," the Mountain View Police Department said in a news release on Wednesday.

Investigators believe Michael took the child in a blue 2007 Nissan Altima 4-door with paper plates. The vehicle has both front and back end collision damage. It is unknown where he may be taking the child.

Michael is described as a 45-year-old white male with brown hair and brown eyes, standing 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing about 220 pounds. He has full body tattoos including the tops of his hands and was last seen wearing a white Golden State Warriors t-shirt.

Anyone who sees Madilyn, Michael, or the suspect vehicle is urged to call 911 immediately.
