A 35-year-old mother and her 10-year-old daughter may be in the Clarke County area, according to police.

Heather Unbehaun abducted her daughter, Kayla Unbehaun, on July 5, 2017, according to the South Elgin Police Department. Investigators said when Kayla’s father went to pick up his daughter, he found they had packed up during the Fourth of July weekend and left their Illinois home. A nationwide search has been underway ever since.

This week, the Athens-Clarke County Police said they have had several reported sightings of the fugitive and her daughter.

Anyone who believes they have spotted them should contact police immediately.
