Virginia State Police and the Virginia Missing Children Clearinghouse say a one-year-old child in Fairfax County has been abducted.
Authorities have issued an Endangered Missing Child Alert for the boy.
The Fairfax County Police Department is looking for one-year-old Zian Armani Holeman. Police say he was last seen in Alexandria yesterday evening with the suspect -- 26-year-old Vernice Simmons -- and is believed to be in danger.
Simmons is described as black, 5-foot-6, about 210 pounds, with brown eyes and straight black hair. She was wearing a blue hooded shirt, dark jeans and white sneakers.
The baby is described as a black male, 18-inches tall and weighing 21 pounds. He was wearing a black-and-red hooded shirt, blue jeans, black Timberland boots, a black-and-blue hat and a white undershirt.
Authorities say Simmons was supposed to take the child to a movie yesterday, but never took him home. Police say they don't know Simmons might go, since she is not known to drive. She was last seen walking with the child.
