NOW: Search continues for missing 11-month-old Mercedes Lain


PLYMOUTH, Ind.--A desperate plea for the safe return of 11-month-old Mercedes Lain of Plymouth.

"Please bring her home or take her somewhere where she can be brought home. Please we’re asking for your guys help," Mercedes' Aunt Stacy Milton said.

Almost five days later, Mercedes remains missing, and both her parents Tiffany Coburn and Kenny Lain are behind bars, along with a third man Justin Miller who was babysitting her.

"We know that Mercedes was last seen at the Economy Inn on Thursday evening," Plymouth Police Chief David Bacon said. "She was left in the care of Justin Miller."

Now the trio is talking to investigators who are desperately searching for the missing child, but police say their stories don't add up.

"We’re looking to establish a sequence. All their information does not corroborate each other," Bacon said.

Little Mercedes was last seen in a white onesie with pink trim.

"She loved. She’s very loved. We want her home," Milton said.

"We are looking for the public’s help because our main focus is to bring Mercedes home safely," Bacon said.

ABC57 spoke with people at the Economy Inn, one of the places where Mercedes was last seen, where they said police searched every hotel room looking for her.

According to the FBI, Mercedes was last seen in Mishawaka at 12:30 AM, but they did not release who last saw her, or where she was at.

Plymouth police say they believe she is in St. Joseph, Starke, or Marshall county and are asking the publics help to find her.

Crime Stoppers is offering up a $1,000 reward with any information that leads to finding Mercedes.
