Police believe one of the parents of a missing nine-month-old knows her location

Posted: Sep 20, 2010 1:23 PM PDT
Updated: Sep 21, 2010 6:59 AM PDT

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Police say a Memphis mother has admitted to giving her baby to a stranger, and not reporting the incident for ten days.

Police believe one of the baby's parents, Lauryn Dickens, knows where she is, and the convoluted situation may be a case of "custodial interference."

Family law books define custodial interference as "the taking or keeping of a child from the custodial parent with the intent to interfere with that parent's rightful physical custody."

Monday, jail records said baby's father, Benjamin Norfleet, was in jail on a building burglary charge. He told police he knows nothing about the baby's location.

But according to an incident report, the baby's mother, Shakara Dickens, told police she talked with Norfleet on September 7 about "the welfare of the child and her not being able to care for the child properly."

The report said Norfleet told Dickens to, "give the child to an unknown female-white."

Dickens said the woman came to her Raleigh apartment complex that day. She allegedly gave the baby to the woman, and has not seen her daughter for about a week and a half.

The woman who allegedly took the baby was described as a white female, 40 to 50 years old, who wears eyeglasses and has gray, shoulder-length, straight hair with a center part. The woman was last seen wearing a buttoned blouse, khaki Capri pants, and white, closed to sandals.

Uh oh, I don't have a good feeling about this, the mother didn't report baby missing for 10 days! Sounds like shades of Casey Anthony...

Memphis Father of Missing 10-Month Baby May Know Her Whereabouts

Reported by: Jackie Orozco
Email: [email protected]
Last Update: 3:35 pm

Video/Article

MEMPHIS, TN -- Memphis police said the father of 10-month old Lauryn Dickens may know where she is. The baby has been missing since September 7th. Investigators issued a "City Watch Alert" Friday, September 17 for 10-month-old Lauryn Dickens, who was last seen wearing a brown onesie with a pink flower and pink dots.

Police are questioning family members, friends, and neighbors for clues about where the baby could be.

It's been two weeks since Lauryn Dickens has been missing. But her mother, Shakara Dickens, waited 10 days to report her daughter missing, after she gave her baby to a complete stranger. Police said their number one concern is the safety of that baby and time may be running out.

"Makes me want to cry looking at her going missing like that," said a neighbor.

The search started at the Raleigh Apartment complex. Amber Alerts are only issued when a child is abducted and is in imminent danger. So far there's no evidence that could lead police to believe the child is in harms way. But Eyewitness News spoke with the Commission on Missing and Exploited Children (COMEC) and said the child could be in danger without the police even knowing it.

Mother of missing baby jailed; apartment searched

Posted: Sep 21, 2010 7:35 PM PDT
Updated: Sep 21, 2010 7:40 PM PDT

Jason Miles
Article/Video

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Action News 5 was the only station on the scene as a police cadaver dog hit on a scent Tuesday afternoon inside an apartment in the Raleigh Village complex on Yale Road where nine-month-old Lauryn Dickens was reported missing by her mother late last week.

"Don't have a comment," said one detective.

Police were tight-lipped about their search warrant, but a crime scene technician removed a number of paper sacks and baby toys from the apartment.

No body was recovered and there was no sign of 19 year-old Shakara Dickens, who claims she gave her baby to a total stranger more than a week before she reported little Lauryn missing.

"She didn't want the baby, apparently," said neighbor Phyllis Davenport.

She and others have tried to rationalize the mother's actions.

"She need to be checked out," said Davenport. "Maybe going through depression and just couldn't handle it."

Dickens said she gave up little Lauryn after speaking with the baby's father, Benjamin Norfleet, who is in jail and told police he knew nothing about it.

Memphis Police Director Can't Confirm If Child Is Alive

Danya Bacchus
9/22/10

FAST FACTS:
Mother Of Missing Baby Still Behind Bars
Being Held On 48 Hour Hold For Aggravated Child Neglect
Police Director Godwin Can't Confirm If Child Is Alive
[email protected]

(Memphis 09/22/2010 ) Nine month old Lauryn Dickens has been missing for weeks. Police can't confirm her mother, Shakara Dickens, story that she gave the baby girl to a person she didn't know. It all equals to a bad feeling for Memphis' top cop.

"I hope I'm wrong on this one and we find the child safely," said Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin.

Shakara Dickens is behind bars. She has not been charged but police have her on a 48-hour hold for aggravated child neglect and endangerment. They say she gave conflicting statements about her daughter's disappearance. According to police records, Dickens told police she gave her daughter to a stranger on September 7th. she says the woman claimed to be a friend of her daughter's father, 19-year old Benjamin Norfleet. He's behind bars for breaking into cars. Director Godwin says time isn't on their side because the mother waited 8 days before reporting the disappearance to police.

"When it's nine days old you've eliminated an Amber Alert and fresh tracks. If she gave the child to someone where did they go?" said Godwin.

Mother Questioned about Missing Baby

Updated: Thursday, 23 Sep 2010, 10:08 AM CDT
Published : Thursday, 23 Sep 2010, 9:05 AM CDT
Scott Madaus

Video/Article

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The investigation continues as Memphis Police search for clues into what happened to 10-month old Lauryn Dickens. The child disappeared earlier this month when her mother Shakara Dickens told police she gave the baby to a friend of the father.

As the search for 10-month old Lauryn Dickens continues, neighbors say Shakara Dickens' story doesn't add up.

"It didn't make any sense to me, it really didn't."

Missing since September 7th, Dickens told police a white woman between 40 and 50 years old with gray hair wearing glasses came to the Raleigh Village Apartments to pick up the baby.

http://www.myfoxmemphis.com/dpp/news...t-missing-baby

I agree with her neighbors, it's a bullshit story, and it doesn't make sense!!

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Memphis Police have confiscated the vehicle they believe Shakara Dickens was driving around the time her 10-month old baby disappeared.

The vehicle belongs to Shakara's mother, and was towed from Brownsville Road Elementary School.

In an earlier article I posted, it was stated that both Lauryn's grandmothers refused to speak to media. I would like to know when the last time these grandmothers saw Lauryn...
