The FBI has joined the search for baby Royalty Wolf, and more help is on the way.
Law enforcement say the case is now a joint federal investigation. The FBI has been brought in to help bring the baby home, but they do believe the mother is getting help to avoid capture.
“We do believe she is in danger,” said family friend Julianne Neely.
More than a week after 3-month-old Royalty Wolf went missing during a supervised DCFS visit, concern for the girl's family and friends is growing by the minute.
On Sunday, the girl's family met with well-wishers to release balloons amid unconfirmed accounts that Royalty and her mother had been seen.
She was taken, according to police, during a visit at the Lawndale home of Randolph’s mother. She told FOX 32 that Royalty was taken while a distracted DCFS worker watched a movie on her cell phone.
Police said they believe Royalty could be in danger, so now her family has enlisted the help of a national group that helps track down missing children.
There are also questions about whether an Amber Alert should have been issued. A Chicago police spokesman saying they did not have accurate vehicle information to do so.
The family has set up a Facebook page as they hope Royalty is returned safely.
Mikequera is believed to have ties to Atlanta and Lafayette, Indiana.
A police spokesman said Tuesday they believe they are close to cracking the case.
