Milwaukee’s police chief says authorities are asking for help “from the entire nation” to find a missing 2-year-old girl after a man was arrested on suspicion of killing her mother.

Chief Alfonso Morales said Dariaz Higgins has been providing police with information on the whereabouts of his daughter, Noelani Robinson, but it has “proven to be untrue.”

At a news conference Friday, Morales said it’s not clear where Noelani is, and said whoever has the girl now should come forward.

“If you are a victim of the suspect’s lies, and you are in possession of Noelani, now is the time to turn her over to a safe location, whether it’s a hospital, police department, a school or a church,” Morales said.

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm said Friday he hopes anyone who knows any of those involved in the incident will come forward with information.

“This is our opportunity simply to ask anybody that knows any of the people related to this incident to provide us information,” Chisholm said. “You might not think it’s important information, you might not think it’s relevant — please provide it to us and let us determine that. Our only interest here is to locate this little girl and to make sure she’s safe and return her to her family.”

Higgins is accused of fatally shooting Sierra Robinson and wounding one of her friends Monday. Police arrested him Wednesday and prosecutors have charged him with first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say Higgins, of Miami, came to Milwaukee to give Noelani to Robinson but it’s unknown if Higgins actually brought her with him. Police say Robinson had been living in Las Vegas since February.

Police have said Noelani may be in Minnesota, but Morales emphasized she could be anywhere.
