UPDATE (4:15 p.m. 4/12) – Michaela Aldridge and her daughter were located and are safe. Aldridge spoke with the investigator and informed them to contact her family.
City of Milton Chief of Police Anthony Tindell announced today that:
On 04-09-17 at about 7:45 am, Michaela Aldridge, 22, left her residence, in the Ferris Hill area of Milton, to go for a walk with her three-year-old daughter, Katelyna Leland.
Michaela’s aunt said she put her three-year-old in the stroller on the way to Carpenter Park Sunday. That’s the last time Kim, the aunt, saw Michaela.
Kim did not want to be interviewed but did talk to News 5 about her missing niece. Michaela only took her daughter and her cell phone when she left the home Sunday.
Kim also says she believes Michaela may have come to the park to meet someone but things could have gone sour. The father of Katelyna lives out of state but told Kim he hasn’t spoken with Michaela.
Investigators told Kim they have pinged Michaela’s phone but it hasn’t given a signal since Sunday.
Her family received a text from her around 1:15 pm on 04/09/17, saying she was staying with a friend but has not had any contact since.
If anyone has had any contact with Michaela they are asked to contact the Milton Police Department at 983-5423.
