Wisconsin father who allegedly abducted 2-year-old daughter now arrested, but daughter’s whereabouts remain a mystery: Police

Milwaukee Police(MILWAUKEE) -- A Wisconsin father who allegedly abducted her 2-year-old daughter after fatally shooting her mother has been arrested, but the child has not been found, police say.

An Amber Alert was issued for 2-year-old Noelani Robinson, who was last seen on Monday.

At the time of the alert, she was believed to be with her father, Dariaz Higgins, 34, who police said should be considered armed and dangerous.

The search began after Milwaukee police responded Monday afternoon to a shooting they say was carried out by Higgins.

"We are asking Mr. Higgins to take her and drop her off some place safe -- a family member's house, a fire station, a hospital," Thomas Casper, acting captain for the Milwaukee Police Department's homicide division, said at a news conference Tuesday.

Noelani's mother, 24-year-old Sierra Robinson, was found lying on a driveway outside an apartment building, police said. She had been shot multiple times and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The other woman, a 28-year-old, was also shot multiple times and was hospitalized in unknown condition, Casper said.

Higgins was arrested by the Milwaukee Police Department Wednesday afternoon, the department said in a statement.

A second individual was also arrested with Higgins for "harboring and aiding a fugitive," police said. That person's name has not been released.

Authorities said they continue to use all available resources to find Noelani and urged the public to be on the lookout for her.

The reason for the brawl: a parent didn't like the calls being made by a 13-year-old umpire.

The fight began at Westgate Elementary School in Lakewood, Colo., a suburb southwest of Denver, on Saturday at about noon as 15 to 20 adults got into a violent tussle, according to Lakewood police.

The brawl was still ongoing as Lakewood police arrived at the scene.

Police issued four citations for disorderly conduct, but said they are still searching for others involved in the fight.

Police are looking for an adult in a white T-shirt and teal shorts in particular because he can be seen in the video throwing sucker punches at people looking in the other direction. Police said it is unknown if this person is a parent of one of the children in the game.

There were a few minor injuries and one person suffered serious bodily injury, police told ABC News. No details on the injury were available.
