An Amber Alert has been issued for a missing 5-year-old Florida girl, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).
Taylor Williams was last seen in her home on Ivy Street in Jacksonville around midnight Tuesday, Nov. 5, police said, according to FOX30.
An adult, who reported her missing, told police that they noticed the little girl was not in her room around midnight and the back door of the home was unlocked.
Taylor is described as a black female, 3 feet tall, weighs 50 pounds, and has brown eyes and brown hair. She was last seen wearing a purple shirt and pink pajama pants, authorities said.
Authorities initially issued a Florida Missing Child Alert early Wednesday morning, but it was upgraded to an Amber Alert just after 11 a.m.
In both types of alerts, investigators have concluded that Williams’s life is in danger. The FDLE said a Missing Child Alert “may evolve into an Amber Alert” investigators think the child was also abducted.
“She’s a beautiful young lady. If anyone in our community sees her, could you please help us to get her home and get her back safely?” T.K Waters, JSO chief of investigation, said.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Williams is asked to contact the FDLE’s Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse at 1-888-356-4774, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500, or 911.
