    Lain was last seen in Plymouth, Indiana, some 123 miles north of Indianapolis. It wasn’t clear whether the baby and Miller were linked.

    When the youngster went missing, it was also unclear who was caring for her.

    How in the H E Double Hockey Sticks does anyone not know who was in charge of her care? She's an 11 month old human being, not a golf ball lost in a sand trap. MOO

    Frustratingly little details! Like, why exactly do they believe she's extreme danger and/or needs medical attention? I understand there are privacy issues, but IMO that sometimes has to be sacrificed if there is something important than can lead to finding the child safely.

    Ugh, another baby taking off without the parents knowing where they are. Babies need to stop taking off without permission(sarcastic)

    We have seen cases like these before. Not knowing who has the baby, everyone points fingers to each other. yet no baby to be found alive and thriving.
    I seriously think that baby is not alive, unless it's with someone who is living under a rock and has no idea LE is searching for her.
    Every hour baby is not found, the chances is being loved, fed, taken care off goes down, in my eyes.
    Be safe Mercedes.

    Plymouth PD gave live update on Mercedes. Her parents (Tiffany Coburn & Kenny Lain) and Justin Lee Miller have been arrested and are in jail for neglect of a dependent.

    • Asking for public's help.
    • Thurs evening Mercedes was seen in Marshall County, St. Joe County & Stark County
    • 3 stories are not corroborating each other.
    • Trying to have anyone who had contact w/ Miller or the Lains over the weekend or over the last week to reach out to provide info on Mercedes.
    • Miller continues to speak w/ investigators but info isn't matching what LE knows.
    • Crime Stoppers is offering a reward up to $1000 for any info to locate Mercedes. Any tips remain anonymous.
    • Believe and are confident Mercedes is in Marshall, St. joe, or Stark county.
    • Silver Alert issued.
    • She was given to Justin for babysitting. He hadn't returned her in certain amount of time so they issued Silver Alert. Technically is not an abduction. Parents voluntarily gave Mercedes to him.
    • A.O., Mercedes' grandma (& another woman) - Asking anyone to please bring her home or take her to safety. Asking for help. Please drop her off at police dept., fire station, Walmart in a cart. Just bring her home.
    • Past 24 hrs has been horrible.
    • Mercedes is very loved and they want her home.
    • Mercedes was last known wearing white onesie w/ pink trim.
    • Justin is a family friend.
    • LE confirmed Justin did have Mercedes.
    • They are following many leads. Have contacted every place they know he went. Still following many leads.
    • Lains stayed at the hotel. Justin pick up Mercedes from Economy Inn 2535 N. Michigan Street. Google Maps
    • Any future developments they will reach out.

    Clarification on why it was not an AMBER alert for her because she was not taken, but rather she had been voluntarily given to Justin.

    She was last seen at Econo Lodge on Thursday.
