5-year-old missing

MOBILE -- A father desperate is to find his 5-year-old daughter says the girl's grandmother took her from a day care without his permission. The girl's mother now has the child. Meanwhile, the grandmother -- Irene Dueitt -- is in jail. The little girl's father says this is the second time his daughter has been taken.

“ It's unexplainable, the daycare messed up, I could be held at fault a little bit for not paying attention, watching me, watching my back to see if they're following me to find out where she went to daycare at.”

The little girl's mother says the girl's father called the daycare giving them the code to release the daughter to her grandmother. Police still don't know where she or the 5-year-old are -- but she spoke with our sister station, Local 15, over the phone about why she ran.

“I ran with my daughter to protect her, he's trying to make me out to be a monster, but in reality, he's the monster. My child is in great danger with this man.”

So far, no kidnapping charges have been filed in the case.
