At the moment, there is no word on the vehicle the child was brought into or where they might go, which is why the little girl’s father is hoping the public can help.
SEATTLE – Police are searching Five-year-old Sky Sanchez. She was taken by her mother on a Sunday supervised visit in Seattle.
Demetre Wilkins, Sky’s father, was given full custody of the child in May. The court-issued parenting plan has given Sky’s mother, Kiana Sanchez, supervised visitation.
Wilkins said he took Sky to At Indaba, a supervised childcare center, in Seattle. Sky had a planned visit with Sanchez on Sunday morning. Wilkins said two hours after the four-hour visit, he received a call from an At Indaba employee who said Sanchez had run out of the building with the 5-year-old.
“This is so bizarre. I’m living my worst nightmare,” said Wilkins, “I don’t think it’s the last time I’ll see my baby… I feel confident I’ll see him again. little.”
Wilkins said this is not the first time Sanchez has disappeared with their daughter. In May, after gaining full custody of the children, he said it took four months to locate Sky and Sanchez.
The parenting plan issued by the court said Sanchez used conflict in a way that could seriously damage Sky’s psychological development. The document also states that during supervised visits, “the supervisor will take additional precautions to ensure that the Mother cannot run away with the child.”
“Regarding that which was written by order of the court, Mr. Wilkens gave those court orders to the establishment and she was able in her second residence with the child to elope with her. Exactly what the court said was necessary so it didn’t happen,” said Wilken’s attorney, Erica Knauf Santos.
Wilkins argued that the facility did not have proper security, including cameras. Indaba did not immediately respond to KING5’s request for comment.
Authorities are looking for the child. Police said Wilkins did not have enough information about what happened after Sanchez left, such as a description of the vehicle, to issue an amber warning.
Sky was last seen with her hair braided, pink top, blue dress, and pink shoes. If anyone spots Sky or Sanchez, they will be asked to call 911.
