Original Story

Pitt County authorities are looking for a father who they say kidnapped his 20-month old daughter this evening.

Winterville police say Brian Conner went to the home of the toddler's babysitter, forced his way in and ran out the door with the girl.

Raven Briana Conner was last wearing a pink "moma's little girl" long sleeve shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes. She is about 2-1/2 feet tall and weighs about 25 pounds.

Police say Conner does not have custody of the child.

He was last seen driving a 2006 seafoam-colored Chrysler 300 with dark tinted windows. The car has North Carolina tags WPL-4868.
