Published: 09/27/12 – Amber Alert for Kidnapped 3-week-old Infant – Starks CO, IL:

 Kendra Meaker, 19, the mother of Mia Graci Thompson, pulled into the Toulon, Illinois, Post Office earlier this morning. Baby Mia was snuggled in her car-seat sleeping next to her 11-month-old sister, so Kendra decided to run in the post office real quick. She came back and didn’t notice Mia missing until her drive home and that is when panic struck.

An amber alert has been issued to the public for assistance in finding baby Mia, who was wearing a yellow onesie with a flower on the left shoulder.

Authorities say there were no witnesses to the kidnapping and they believe the three-week-old is in danger.

‘My wife called me and she was in a state of panic. She told me that our granddaughter, one-month-old Mia Graci Thompson had been abducted,’ said Mia’s grandfather, Ken Meaker.

Mia was born on September 6 to Kendra Meaker and Timothy Thompson.

Investigator’s are treating Miss Meaker’s vehicle as a crime scene but said they have ruled out all family members as suspects. But due to no witnesses, they have no legitimate leads.

Mia is described as a white female, 8 pounds and 21 inches long.

The family has asked for concerned citizens to pray for the safe return of their little girl.

Toulon, Illinois, is a small town about 150 miles southwest of Chicago.
