The suspect is 34-year-old Laquita Davis, described as a black woman with brown hair and brown eyes, 5 feet 7 inches tall and 170 pounds. She was last seen wearing a brown jacket and blue jean pant, according to California Highway Patrol.
The alert was issued for Alameda and Contra Costa counties, according to local station ABC7 News.
According to local Fox News station KTVU, Malayia was abducted by her mother, who does not have custody of her. Davis took the child, then fled the scene.
According to local authorities, the mother is described as a homeless woman with “diminished capacity,” who in the past has been known for parental abductions. On July 14, Davis took Malayia, who at the time was with her grandparents, said Berkeley police. Davis had taken Malayia a time before that as well.
Malayia’s father currently has custody of her. Anyone with information about this case is urged to call 911.
