UPDATE: The amber alert has been canceled. The child was found safe.
A Missouri Amber Alert has been issued for a baby girl after she was allegedly taken by two men in Laclede County, local officials say. Details are limited but anyone with information is urged to call 911 immediately.
Two men were supposedly taking the baby to a hospital in the Lebanon area to receive post natal care after she was born on Tuesday, according to the amber alert. The men never made it to the hospital.
One of the suspects is identified as Mike. He’s described as a 45-year-old white male with a light gray beard, while the second man is only described as a white, bald male. The baby is white as well.
The two men are said to have taken the girl in a blue Jeep Wrangler with a black soft top and unknown plates. They were last seen at 2:20 p.m. in the Nebo-Falcon area near Missouri 32 (MO-32) and Route U.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the child is urged to call 911 immediately, or call the Lebanon Police Department at 417-532-3131 if you have any other information that could help investigators.
