MILWAUKEE -- The FBI announced on Friday, March 15 that it is now offering a $5,000 reward for information that helps locate 2-year-old Noelani Robinson. An Amber Alert was issued for Noelani on Monday after her mother, Sierra Robinson, was murdered near 91st and Mill -- allegedly by Noelani's father, Dariaz Higgins.
Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales
"The suspect is a cold-blooded killer -- and our search to find Noelani has become a game to him," said Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales. "It's obviously apparent he truly doesn't care about Noelani."
The chief then spoke to the people who may have Noelani.
"If you are a victim of the suspect's lies and you are in possession of Noelani, now is the time to turn her over to a safe location whether it is a hospital, a police department, a school or a church," Morales said. "If you release Noelani now, and she is not harmed. You will likely not be prosecuted. However, if you continue to hold Noelani in your possession, we will eventually find you and her and you will be prosecuted to the highest degree of the law."
Anyone with information on Noelani Robinson's whereabouts is asked to please contact Milwaukee police.
