    VA - Janyiha Whiteman, 11 months, Virginia Beach, 1 Oct 2011

    http://www.wtkr.com/news/wtkr-virgin...,2848731.story

    Police are seeking the publicís assistance in locating 10-month-old Janyihna Whiteman, who was last seen by family members on October 1st at Colony Trailer Park located at 913 Virginia Beach Boulevard.

    Police were contacted by family members concerning the welfare of Marie Whiteman, the babyís mother, left her baby in the care of her boyfriend, Lawrence Ray Smith, on September 16th.

    --------------------------------------
    This was just posted on the 'local' news.
    Not a very well written article, so it's kind of hard to kick off the questions.. but here goes:

    1. Which family member contacted LE?
    2. Why hasn't the mother reported the baby missing before?
    3. Where is the baby?
    4. Not that I think he has anything to do with this, but, where is the birth father?

    hinky meter says mom is involved and it was other family that were concerned over the child's welfare enough to involve LE.

    Janyiahna Whiteman's mother, Marie, left the baby with her boyfriend, Lawrence Ray Smith, 33, on September 16. Janyiahna was last seen by family members on October 1 at the Colony Trailer Park, located at 913 Virginia Beach Boulevard.

    The family hasn't heard from Smith since October 3. Police were contacted by relatives concerned with Janyiahna's welfare on October 6.

    Janyiahna is bi-racial and has blue eyes and brown hair. She is 20 to 25 pounds and is two feet tall.

    How sad. I'm very worried about her - doesn't sound good.

    I found another article...

    The mother of the 10-month-old baby gave her to her boyfriend, Lawrence Ray Smith, 33, on Sept. 16 to care for while she went away for several weeks, said Officer Jimmy Barnes, a police spokesman, this afternoon. But the mother has returned and has not been able to locate him.

I apologize in advance to anyone whose potential involvement is contemplated in error. Please understand that much of what is happening is merely brainstorming during unfortunate events.

    Snipped.......................................

    The case is not considered an abduction at this time, Barnes said. Police are looking for Smith, who is wanted on an unrelated felony charge

    Unfortunately he probably wont be coming in with the baby if he has a felony warrant out for his arrest.

    Her being biracial with blue eyes makes her distinctive.. that is a good thing in case she's out there!!!!
    First gut reaction is boyfriend sold her because he was sick of caring for her

    not an abduction because the mother left the baby in his care while she went "off" for a couple weeks.
