Original story:

Authorities are searching for a 4-year-old Michigan girl whose father told her mother she’d never see the little girl again.

Marysville and Port Huron police said that Lilliana Louise Nardini was last known to be with her non-cusotodial father, Erik Nardini, WDIV reported.

The girl was last seen late Monday night at a Burger King in Marysville.

Police said Nardini was recently served with a court order requiring him to hand over Lilliana to her mother, but he told the mother she’d never see the child again.

Investigators were initially looking for a gray 2018 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with Michigan license plate CSP838 but now believe Nardini and his daughter are in a silver 2003 Ford Taurus with Michigan license plate EKT-6624. That vehicle was last seen southbound just north of Toledo, Ohio.

“It is believed that Lilliana will be with her father, and they are currently on the run,” Marysville police said in a statement.

Anyone with information should call Marysville Police at 810-364-6300, or the Port Huron Major Crimes Unit at 810-984-5383. If spotted, police say not to approach them.
