HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The desperate search is on for a missing 4-month-old girl after Houston police issued an Amber Alert.
Police say Stephanie Lavette Phillips was taken from her mother before dawn at the apartment complex at West Bellfort near Fondren in southwest Houston where they live. The alleged abductor, Byron Gee, is the boyfriend of the baby's mother. He is not the child's biological father.
Early this morning, neighbors at the complex say they heard the woman screaming.
"Screaming, yelling, 'Bring my baby back! I'm going to call police!'" said one resident.
Police say Gee took the baby, then stole an SUV from a woman across the street who was leaving for work. The stolen vehicle Gee is in is reportedly a white 1999 Ford Expedition with Texas license plate DK3N645.
Police searched the apartment complex for the baby, but did not find her.
Gee is a 26-year-old black male who stands 5 feet, 9 inches tall and was last seen wearing black pants, black shirt and no shoes. Gee is also described as bi-polar.
Stephanie is a black child. She was wearing only a white T-shirt and diaper.
