Alert issued in Florida for 3 missing girls believed to be with their mother who has threatened to harm them
Authorities in Florida have issued a statewide missing child alert for three children who went missing from the Seffner area on Monday, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The children, three young girls, could reportedly be traveling with an adult, believed to be their mother, who has threatened to harm herself and her daughters, deputies said, according to Fox 35 Orlando.
Deputies from the Hillsborough County are searching for 8-year-old Iyana Sailor, 4-year-old Nahlia Wade, and 1-year-old Noelle Wade. The three girls were last seen shortly after midnight on Monday at a mobile home in the 6000 block of Williams Road in Seffner, Florida.
The state law enforcement said that the children may be with their mother, who has been identified as 25-year-old ShaunQue Sailor. Authorities believe that all of them may be traveling in a green 2006 Honda Ridgeline, FL tag number NKAY80 and could likely be in the Tallahassee area.
Deputies said that ShaunQue has made threats to harm herself and the three children, adding that time is of the essence in this case. It is not yet known whether the mother has custody of all of the three children.
Authorities have described Iyana as a black female, 4 feet tall, weighs 50 pounds, has black hair and brown eyes. Nahlia is described as a black female, 3 feet tall, weighs 50 pounds, has black hair and brown eyes. Noelle is described as a black female, 50 inches tall, weighs 25 pounds, has black hair and brown eyes. While their mother, ShaunQue is described as a black female, 5’7 feet tall, weighs 125 pounds, has black hair and brown eyes.
Sheriff Chad Chronister, in a statement, on Monday, said: "Time is of the essence when it comes to locating missing children. We want to see these young girls returned safely to their home and get their mother help if needed, so we're asking the public to help us find them. No tip is too small."
Anyone with information about the children and their mother is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 813-247-8000 or 911.
