Chesterfield (VA) police are searching for a 24-year-old mother, her 1-year-old child and the man believed to have abducted them.
Maryaih Rhem, 24, is believed to have abducted on Sunday. She is described as a Black woman with black hair and brown eyes. She is 5-feet-8-inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds.
NBC12 reports that law enforcement have not been able to locate Rhem’s child, 12-month-old Royce Rhem, who is described as a Black boy, 2-feet-6-inches tall and weighing about 28 pounds.
According to law enforcement sources, the abduction occurred on Sunday following shots being fired near the 12500 block of Mount Blanco Court in Chesterfield.
Police determined an armed man, identified as Patrick Sharod Parrish, got out of a vehicle and demanded to see Maryaih Rhem. Once she came outside of the residence, police say she was forcefully put into the vehicle as Parrish was firing a rifle. The vehicle fled with Parrish and Rhem inside, police say.
Police have obtained warrants for Parrish. He has warrants for abduction, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, reckless handling of a firearm, brandishing and discharging a firearm within 600 feet of a home.
Parrish is described as a black male, 6-feet-1-inch tall and weighing about 191 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. Investigators say Parrish may have driven a white Dodge Stratus with no hub caps.
