RUSSELLVILLE, Ky. (WBKO) -- The Logan County Sheriff's Department is requesting the public's assistance locating a wanted woman and her daughter.
Deputy Jakop Smith was approached by a man at the Logan County Sheriff's Office who advised that he was granted emergency custody of his daughter through Logan Circuit Court on May 30, 2019 after the mother, Amanda Otero, did not appear to the emergency custody hearing with their child, Amya Grace Otero.
The father said he believed the mother had possibly fled the Commonwealth of Kentucky with the child, but could also be somewhere in Warren County at this time.

3-year-old Amya Grace Otero is described as a white female approximately 3'0, 37-40 lbs, with brown eyes and blonde hair.
At this time there is an outstanding warrant of arrest for Amanda Otero, who is considered to be possibly armed and dangerous.
