MISSING! Arkansas baby taken by non-custodial father, police say pair on the way to South Carolina

Police are searching for a Blytheville, Arkansas, baby they believe was taken by her non-custodial father Saturday night.

At 1 pm on Saturday, the child’s mother, Tynese Newmy, 22, got a call from the sister of her child’s father, Niambi Talley, 18, asking if she could watch Tyraji Johnson, Newmy’s 1-year-old. Newmy, who said yes, got a call at 4 pm the same day from her mother about Niambi being at her home seeking clothes so the baby could spend the night, according to KAIT.

Newmy supposedly declined the second request and said she would get her daughter at 7 pm after she got off of work. That didn’t happen, however, as the child’s non-custodial father, Kenyatta Talley, 23, of Anderson, South Carolina, allegedly took his daughter and headed to his home state. The 1-year-old’s mother reportedly found out about the alleged kidnapping the next day.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported that the Blytheville Police Department received the kidnapping report around 3 pm Sunday.

Newmy told officers that Niambi often watched the 1-year-old while she worked. Niambi is possibly en route to Little Rock.

Anyone with information about Talley or Johnson’s location is instructed to call the Blytheville Police Department ASAP at (870) 763-4411.
