URGENT AMBER ALERT: Little girl was ‘not in her room’ after midnight, family says

Florida authorities issued an AMBER Alert for a 5-year-old Jacksonville girl on Wednesday morning.

According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Taylor Williams was last seen at home with her family off of the 600 black Ivy Street in Jacksonville. An adult family member told police they last saw the little girl in her room at around midnight on Wednesday.

The adult said they checked on the child again in the morning. Taylor was not there. The back door at the home was reportedly unlocked.

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.
