A Detroit mother was forced to give up her baby to the child's father. He held her at gunpoint on Christmas Eve.


A'miyah Jones is only four months old. She was with her mother, 22, for her first Christmas Eve. The two were visiting a relative on the 900 block of Web in Detroit.

Around 2 p.m. on Monday, the child's father broke into the relative's house with his twin brother. He showed a gun before forcing A'miyah out of her mother's hands.

Detroit police say JaQuan Jones is 24 and driving a blue Chrysler 200. According to Fox2 Detroit, they are unsure as to what direction he headed after the abduction.

According to Fox5, the police did not issue an amber alert for A'miyah. The conditions don't fit the state alert, nor was it requested.

Persons with information are asked to call the Police Department's Third Precinct at 313-596-1300 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP.


Meanwhile, a UIC student remains missing from December 14. Her family is asking the public for their help.

Shalyha Ahmad, 18, was supposed to go to a birthday party for her brother before she disappeared. The Student Center East, 750 S. Halsted St is listed as her last seen location.

Her mother, Shetti Fattim Ahmad said Shalyha was not at the "meeting place and that's when [the family] got worried. She contacted the Chicago police.

Shalyha wore a multi-colored jacket, blue jeans, a red beanie hat, and a black and red Chrome messenger bag when she disappeared.


She stands at 5-foot-5 tall and weight about 110 pounds. Her hair is straight and black and her eyes are dark brown. Persons with information should reach out to detectives on (312)-744-8266.

Another missing baby was successfully reunited with her mother after a teen girl abducted him in the middle of the night. The abductor was an overnight guest at the home.

Back in October, Dayton police were happy to announce that nine-month-old I'zyion Reese, who was declared missing in the early hours of October 8, had been found safe.


Police placed Ty'Kariah Smith, 15 under arrest for the act. The baby's mother was distraught at first, feeling like she had let her son down.

Of course, it would have been difficult to ever see such a thing coming. Police are still unsure as to why the crime happened.

We hope that the other children reunite with their parents as in the above story. In the first case, we hope the child's father realizes his error and brings back the child.
