RALEIGH, N.C. – Durham police are looking for a 10-month-old girl, whose disappearance prompted an Amber Alert on Saturday.

Authorities are looking for Tamiyah Elssy Bryant, an infant allegedly abducted by 26-year-old Rodney Francis Bryant.

Tamiyah Bryant is described as a 10-month-old black female, about 18 inches long and weighing 24 pounds.

    You stated in this article that she is a 10 month old black female. However in the picture the baby looks to be of mixed race. She’s definitely not 100% black. Please be more accurate when describing a missing infant.

    Not just that, but she is said to be 18 inches long. Most children are at least 18 inches long at birth. I really doubt that a typical10 month old is only 18 inches long.

    This also states that the baby is 18inches long. I don’t think this is correct. Could the numbers be backwards….18lbs maybe?

      I seriously doubt a 10 month old weighs 18lbs. She may be 18 inches tall at last check but not 18lbs.
