King County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help locating a 7-week-old baby girl believed to be in danger.
Detectives said Trina P. Curry, 33, gave birth to the baby “Lillian” at Highline Hospital in Burien on July 17.
Police learned that Curry used a fake name at the hospital; when officials learned her real name, they discovered her seven other children were removed by the state's Child Protective Services due to abuse or neglect and mental health issues, according to Sgt. Cindi West, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff's Office.
CPS received a “pick-up” order for the baby but police and CPS officials have been unable to locate Curry or Lillian, according to West.
Curry is homeless and does not drive. She was last seen with the baby at a relative’s house in Shoreline on Tuesday, Sept. 4. Curry left with the baby after an argument and has not been seen since, according to West.
Detectives believe Curry and the baby may be with the baby’s father, Quandra R. Powell, 39. Powell has two felony warrants, one for escape from community custody and the other drug-related.
Both Powell and Curry are said to have violent tendencies, according to West. Powell is described at 5-foot-9, 190 pounds with a gold front tooth. Curry is described at 5-foot-6 and 160 pounds.
Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the two should not contact them, according to West. Instead, call the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-396-3311 or 911.
