Los Angeles police Monday were looking for an 11-month-old girl and a homeless man suspected of abducting her.

The infant was taken about 6 p.m. Sunday from the 8100 block of South Western Avenue, but the abduction wasn’t reported to the Los Angeles Police Department until Monday morning, police said.

LAPD officials said they are looking for the girl, named Heather, and a suspect, 39-year-old Delaneo Adams.

Detectives said Adams is believed to be homeless, but he is an acquaintance of the girl’s parents. He was allegedly with the family Sunday night and disappeared with the girl. Police said the suspect was spotted at some point in the Skid Row area of downtown, holding the girl while riding an adult tricycle.

Photos of Heather and Adams were shared on the LAPD’s Twitter feed.
