Police located the suspect vehicle Friday around 8 a.m. near Bennington Avenue & Blue Ridge Boulevard, but Brajaean  is still missing. Police said the vehicle was abandoned on the side of the street.

"Detectives are actively canvassing for witnesses and Crime Scene personnel are processing the vehicle for any evidence," police said. "We still believe Brajaean is in danger and the suspect should be considered armed and dangerous."

Thursday afternoon, Kansas City police responded to the area of 27th Street and Elmwood for a shooting. Police said the girl's grandfather was injured in the shooting and taken to the hospital in critical condition.
