MERRILLVILLE, INDIANA: Authorities issued an amber warning on Monday October 11th for a 7 month old baby named Xeniyah Sanders. She was reportedly abducted from her Merrillville home and is believed to be in “extreme danger.” Merrillville Police found that, according to Xeniyah Sanders’ mother, a man entered her home on block 5600 on Massachusetts Street through a window without permission, took the child and escaped.
According to police, Xeniyah Sanders was last seen in Merrillville at around 5:35 a.m. She wore a white shirt with a watermelon on the front and the words ‘Grandpa is in a bowler hat’, a diaper and shoes. In a similar incident, an Amber warning was recently issued to a six-week-old Ohio boy, Cannon Tatum, who was allegedly abducted by a family friend in Cleveland in August. In another incident, Milwaukee authorities issued an amber alert for a 13-year-old boy, Terrence Trammell, who was missing on Thursday, August 19. Trammell’s mother claimed the 13-year-old was kidnapped by four unknown African Americans. Police issued an amber alarm early Tuesday morning, September 14, after a seven-year-old girl, Kylie Brown, was reportedly removed from her home by her own father in Ohio.
At 12:39 p.m., about 40 minutes after the Indiana police announced the initial warning, the Illinois State Police issued an amber alert. The police have reason to believe that baby Xeniyah was kidnapped by Leandre Nutull. He is described by police as a 35-year-old black man, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 150 pounds, black hair, brown eyes, last seen in a black coat and black jeans, driving a silver 2006 Acura TL with Illinois license plate number CU62616 . Anyone with information on Xeniyah’s whereabouts is asked to call the Merrillville Police Department at 219-660-0028 or 911. The police have not stated whether the suspect knew the missing 7-month-old child. Authorities found that the Amber Alert was also issued in Illinois at the request of the Merrillville Police Department.
