The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) is asking for the public's assistance to locate a missing 2-year-old.

Dakota Ray was taken on April 15, 2018 by her parents William and Jessica Ray in South Carolina.

According to law enforcement, both William and Jessica are believed to be heavy methamphetamine users and law enforcement is concerned for the child’s well being.

The child and her parents were captured in surveillance images on May 14th at a hospital in Le Mars, Iowa.

Law enforcement then received information that they may now be in Minnesota. They were last seen getting gas in Jackson, Minnesota.

The child and companions are traveling in a 1996 gold Ford Aerostar van and may be frequently changing the license plate on the vehicle.

According to Camden Police Department in South Carolina, it is possible they may be begging or asking strangers for money. They are also believed to be sleeping in their vehicle.
