Parents plead for infant's return

The Associated Press

        HOPKINSVILLE — The parents of a missing 10-month-old girl made a plea Saturday for their daughter's safe return.

        Joseph Lee Melancon told police that his daughter, Emily Rose, disappeared early Friday morning while he and his wife, Kristi, were sleeping upstairs.

        Mr. Melancon said the couple last saw the girl at 12:30 a.m. as she lay asleep on the living room floor. He told police the couple went upstairs to go to sleep a short time later, and when they awoke at 6:30 a.m., the baby was gone.

        Joseph Melancon said the back door of their home was standing partially open when they discovered the baby was missing, police said. No evidence of forced entry was discovered, police said.

        An investigator with a bloodhound was called, but no trace of the girl was found.

        The couple have two other children, both boys, ages 2 and 5.
