Missing: Brooklyn Center police search for teenager, baby


Brooklyn Center police are asking for the public's help in locating a 17-year-old girl and her 9-month-old daughter, who are believed to be in danger, according to KSTP.

Police say Shatearra Nash, 17, took her daughter Maggie Nash from a foster home, the Star Tribune reports. The baby has a medical condition that requires regular doses of medication, police say, and without it she could have a seizure.

The two are believed to be traveling with Shandrel Nash, 38, who is Shatearra's father, and that he “poses a risk to their safety.” Police say he has been charged in connection with a felony assault on Shatearra, and an arrest warrant has been issued, according to the Star Tribune.

The teenager and her baby are both wards of the state, according to Brooklyn Center Police Cmdr. Brian Peters.

Police say the three may be heading to Georgia or Florida, and might be hitchhiking because they don't have a vehicle.

“This is medication that needs to be frozen at all times, and if they’re potentially hitchhiking, we can’t figure out a way for them to keep this frozen,” said Peters, according to the Star Tribune.

Authorities are asking the public to watch for them at discount hotels. They may also use business phones at gas stations and other locations open to public use, KSTP reports. Police say they may also seek medical care for Maggie.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hennepin County sheriff's office at 763-525-6215, or call 911.
