Original Story: An Amber Alert has been issued in Virginia for 5-year-old Amiyah Monet Dallas of Orange, Va. According to police, she was last seen on Tuesday in the custody of her aunt, Olivia Dallas.

Police say there has been no contact with Amiyah or her aunt since Tuesday, Feb. 18. The child was last seen at 15239 Mountain Track Rd. in Orange, Va., wearing a pink thermal shirt with buttons, blue jeans and white Chuck Taylor shoes.

An investigation by Orange County and Virginia State Police has led officials to classify this as an abduction case, and Amiyah Dallas could be in imminent danger.

Olivia Dallas is described as a black female, 5'3, approximately 110 pounds with black hair and hazel eyes. She is said to have a history of depression and drug use and may be traveling in a 2001 C240 Mercedes with Maryland tags.

Anyone with information is urged to call Orange Co. Sheriff at (540) 672-1200 or State Police at #77.
