Los Angeles: 
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is requesting that the media provide the public with the following information to assist law enforcement efforts in locating an abducted child.

On February 15, 2011 at around 8:10 p.m., 2-year-old Lashiba Joy Berry was last seen in her family’s RV parked in the area of 70th Street and Grand Avenue where she resides with her father Larry Berry and her two-month-old brother.  Lashiba and her brother were left in the care of the father’s female friend Tamara Moore while he ran some errands. When Berry returned 30 minutes later, Tamara and Lashiba were gone.  Berry found the two-month-old in the RV unharmed.

Tamara has been known to frequent the area of 103rd and Figueroa Streets and 109th Street and Western Boulevard.

Tamara is described as an 18-year-old Black female with black hair and brown eyes. She stands  5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds. Tamara has tattoos under each eye and the name “William” on the back of her neck.

Lashiba is described as a two-year-old Black female with black hair and brown eyes. She is 2 ½ feet tall, weighs about 45 pounds and was last seen wearing orange and pink pajamas.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Lashiba is urged to contact LAPD Newton Division at 323-846-6551. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).
