Authorities are searching for two young girls in Manatee County, who may be the victims of child abuse, and their mother.
The Manatee County Sheriff's Office said in a release that
because of the accusations of child abuse, deputies are concerned
for the well-being of the girls, ages 5 and 6. Their mother is identified as 25-year-old Barbara Stock.
The three were last seen Friday afternoon in Bradenton in a car driven by 66-year-old Arthur Kinsman.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
Both girls are described as being of average height and weight, one with dirty blond hair and the other with brown hair.
