Local News

After a 3-month-old goes missing, the family’s hope is to get their infant back safe and sound. 

“She’s a pretty little baby girl. She’s as beautiful as she can be and I’m reaching out to people, please help find my grandbaby. This is very painful for me,” said Sophia Bryant, who says she is the grandmother.  

A grandmother full of emotion wanting her three-month-old granddaughter, Arieanna, back home.

Sophia Bryant said Arienna was last seen Tuesday night around 10 pm.

Police say it was the mother who put the baby down in her bed. 

“The mother goes to check on the child a short time later, and she finds Arieanna not in her bed, where she had left her,” said Roanoke Police Chief Tim Jones. 

According to police, the doors to the home were unlocked and there was no sign of forced entry or a break in. 

“I just want justice. I want the baby found,” said Sophia Bryant, who says she is the grandmother.   

“How could someone come in and take my newborn baby,” said Diane English who lives on the street where the baby was taken. 

Neighbors like Diane English say she was shocked this could happen in her neighborhood. 

“As being a mother, that makes me like oh lord, I need to keep my doors shut and locked,” said Diane English who lives on the street where the baby was taken.  

Arieanna’s grandmother pleads for anyone out there who may have seen her grandbaby to say something to police or the family.

“Who would hurt a baby? Answer me who would hurt a baby. It’s just an angel, that’s all she is,” said Sophia Bryant, who says she is the grandmother.
