SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah officials have issued an Amber Alert for a 5-year-old Harrisville girl allegedly taken by her noncustodial father.
Authorities said 41-year-old Steven Miller of Killeen, Texas, arrived at the home for child visitation. They said that while the 16-year-old son was changing clothes, Miller left with the girl, Stephanie Juliet Miller.
Officers said the girl has asthma and needs daily medicines but has none with her.
The Amber Alert said Miller could be en route to Texas, but he also has friends throughout the West.
The vehicle was described as a 1980s blue Chevrolet pickup with spray-painted black rims and a temporary Texas license.
Miller was described as white, 5-foot-5, 190 pounds with gray hair, blue eyes and a dragon tattoo on his left arm.
Police said Miller allegedly made a comment that he would go out in style if he had to in order to keep the child.
