BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

Police are searching for a baby who was abducted by its non-custodial father Saturday night.

According to Captain Scott Adams with the Blytheville Police Department, officers got the kidnapping report around 3 p.m Sunday.

Tynese Newmy, 22, said that around 12 p.m. Saturday she got a call from the sister of her child’s father, 18-year-old Niambi Talley.

Niambi asked if she could watch Newmy's one-year-old, Tyraji Johnson, and Newmy said yes.

According to the press release, this was not uncommon and Newmy had to go to work so she let Niambi watch the baby.

Around 4  p.m., Newmy got a call from her mother saying Niambi was at her home wanting clothes so the baby could spend the night.

Newmy said no and that she would pick the child up when she got off work at 7 p.m.

She later found out the non-custodial father, 23-year-old Kenyatta Talley of Anderson, South Carolina had the baby and was headed to South Carolina.

Niambi was possibly headed to Little Rock.

If you know where Kenyatta or Tyraji might be, call the Blytheville Police Department immediately at (870) 763-4411.
