Teen mother, baby missing after CPS hearing in Detroit
Detroit police say a teenager and her 6-month-old daughter are missing after the mother attended a Children's Protective Services hearing Friday.
Shamarie Germany and the baby, Khylie, were last seen about 3:55 p.m., police said in a news release. Earlier Friday, the teen went to the hearing, where she was ordered to go back to Indiana, where she lives with her mother, LaSharie Armstrong.
The teen, who grew up in Detroit, had left Indiana about a month ago when Armstrong was at work and returned to her hometown, she said.
Armstrong said Friday's hearing followed her reaching authorities to share concerns and intervene. She drove her daughter and granddaughter to a relative's home on Collingwood to gather clothes before their return to Indiana when a man believed to be romantically involved with Shamarie showed up in the neighborhood, Armstrong said.
Shamarie took her daughter and ran off to the man's car, Armstrong said.
She fears both are in danger. "I don’t want her to be here," Armstrong told The Detroit News. "I want her to come home with the baby."
Anyone who has seen Shamarie and Khylie Germany, or knows of their whereabouts is asked to call the Detroit Police Tenth Precinct Investigative Unit at 313-596-1040 or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
