DETROIT, Mich. (WOOD) — Detroit police are asking for the public’s help to find a 5-year-old whose non-custodial parent may have taken her toward Indiana.

Zoie Jackson was picked up from a Detroit Community School in the 12600 block of Burt Road on the city’s west side Tuesday by her mother Carmela Jackson, according to a release from Detroit police.

Jackson does not have custody of Zoie. Jackson has also been diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and postpartum depression, police say.

Jackson may be taking her daughter toward Elkhart, Ind.

That means they may head through Battle Creek and Kalamazoo if they take I-94 to US-131.

Zoie is described as about four feet tall and 62 pounds. She has braided, shoulder-length hair. She was last seen wearing a red shirt, black pants and black boots with fur around the top. She also had a black and pink backpack.

Carmela Jackson is described as a 5-foot-6, 150-pound female with brown hair and eyes. It is not known what type of clothing she was wearing.

They may be in a black 2002 Lexus crossover truck with Michigan license plate CMR0252.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit police at 313.237.2579.
