HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) – Henrico police are searching for a 6-year-old girl who they say was abducted by her grandmother.
On Tuesday, Feb. 22, the mother of Ameenah Evans, 6, of Brentwood, New York, gave her mother-in-law Vyolet Cirko, 51, of Central Islip, New York, permission to take Evans to Virginia to visit family.
Police said the two were supposed to return to New York on Feb. 25 but never did.
Investigators say the mother traveled to Virginia to meet Cirko to get her daughter at a location in the 4500 block of S. Laburnum Avenue, but Criko never showed.
Police and family have been unable to contact Criko.
Officials believe Evans is still with Criko, who was last known to be driving a white Toyota Rav4 with New York license plate GUJ-2726.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 804-501-5000 or Detective L. Coover at 804-501-4831.
