Police are looking for the public's help locating a young woman and a baby from Minneapolis, who have not been seen in three days.

According to Minneapolis police, 22-year-old Cha'Tasia Jaree Buchanan and her 14-month-old brother Triston Alvin left their home on Friday, Oct. 28, and have not been seen since.

They were on foot, headed towards Wally's Foods at 1840 Penn Ave. N., and despite searches of the neighborhood since they were reported missing Monday evening, police have not been able to find them.

There are concerns over their welfare, with Buchanan being described as a "vulnerable adult," while the baby has a heart murmur.

Buchanan is described as a black woman with brown hair and eyes, approximately 5'4" tall and 153 pounds. She was last seen wearing a black zip-up hoodie and pants.

Alvin has black curly hair and brown eyes. He weighs around 18 pounds. As well as a heart murmur, he also has a birth mark on the right side of his stomach shaped like an egg.

The pair have been entered as missing persons, with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension telling Minneapolis PD it does not meet the criteria for an Amber Alert.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety's criteria for Amber Alerts state they should only be sent out to the public when a child is abducted and there's reason to believe they're in imminent danger of serious harm or death; and when there's enough information to disseminate to the public that could help with the safe recovery of the victim and apprehension of the suspect.

Anyone with information about the pair's whereabouts should call 911 immediately.
