CHICAGO (CBS) — Police in south suburban Calumet City are asking for help finding two missing sisters, ages 3 and 4, who haven’t been seen since Saturday, when their mother was supposed to return them to their father.
Police said the father of 3-year-old Sadoriea Payne and 4-year-old Jadore Payne dropped them off with their mother, 27-year-old Ashley Lockett, around 10 a.m. on Saturday near the Calumet City police station for court-ordered visitation.
Lockett was supposed to return the girls to their father at 2 p.m. the same day, but they haven’t been seen since, and numerous attempts to contact Lockett have failed.
The sisters are both Black girls. Sadoriea is 2 feet tall and 40 pounds. Jadore is 3 feet tall and 50 pounds.
Police said they believe Lockett might not have a permanent home, and could be staying in a shelter or hotel.
Anyone with information on the missing girls is asked to call the Calumet City Police Department at 708-868-2500.
