Spectrum News reports that authorities initially issued a “Missing Child Alert” for Taylor. They subsequently changed it to an AMBER Alert, which likely indicates police think the child was abducted. No information, however, on a suspect or car make and model was provided.
According to FDLE, AMBER Alerts are not issued for family abductions or cases of runaway children, unless their lives are in immediate danger.
Taylor is described as a black female who stands 3-feet-tall and weighs around 50 pounds. She was last seen wearing pink and purple pajamas.
Anyone with information on Taylor’s whereabouts should contact FDLE’s Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse at 888-356-4774, or the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500.
