BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama authorities are looking for a missing infant and a teen-aged girl who may be linked to his alleged abduction.

The Department of Public Safety issued an alert Tuesday for 2-month-old De'Anthony Dejuan Kelly and 14-year-old Dor'Sayde Gathright.

Officials say Gathright walked off with the child while he was being cared for by Gathright's mother, who is the child's godmother.

The teen girl and another female were seen getting into a 2010 silver Dodge Charger with a man. The baby was last seen around 1 a.m. Monday at a home in Birmingham.

Alabama authorities believe the vehicle may be headed to Mississippi. They don't have a license plate number for the Dodge Charger.

A missing child media alert has been issued since the morning of June 17. According to a media alert, De’Anthony DeJuan Kelly was taken by Dor’Sayde Gathright.

Gathright and another unknown female were seen with the child getting into a 2010 silver Dodge Charger driven by an unknown black male. It is believed that the car is heading to Mississippi.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Kelly or Gathright is encouraged to contact the Birmingham Police Department at 205-297-8413.
