Officers believe she is most likely with the man, Detective Laura Miller added, adding that when she “disappeared in the past, she was found surrounded by adult men.”
“It is mainly because of this story that we think he will most likely be with someone right now,” he said. Miller.
“Maddie is a child in custody, no one is allowed to take her away from her guardians. He is vulnerable, he is in danger of being exploited.
