Sheriff: Three Carroll County girls missing since Tuesday could now be in danger


Katie Cox - RTV6 

CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. -- The Carroll County Sheriff's Office says three girls who went missing earlier this week from their grand mother's home could now be in danger.

Leah Banks, 33, had been staying with her mother for the holidays when the sheriff's office says Ms. Banks took her children Tuesday morning and left.

They are described as:

Amariah Banks, age 6, black female,  4'2", 60 pounds, black hair and brown eyes

Aujhanay Uduhs, age 12, white female, 4'11", 129 pounds, brown hair and hazel eyes

Georgia Banks, age 8, black female, 4'8", 80 pounds, black hair and brown eyes

Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby originally said that the girls were not in "imminent danger" but new information and interviews with relatives have heightened their concern for the girls' safety.

The girls had been removed from their parents' custody by a court in King County, Washington.

The last known address for Leah Banks and Kevin Banks, 33, was in Jonesboro, Arkansas - which is where they believe the family could be traveling to.

It's believed the girls and their parents are traveling possibly to Arkansas in a dark blue Buick Terraza van with Arkansas license plate 345VTN.

Sheriff Leazenby says they did not have the proper information to issue an Amber Alert based on what they know at this time.

If you see the vehicle or the children, please contact local law enforcement immediately.
