Missing girl, 2, possibly with mother, mother's boyfriend

HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) -- Police are looking for a Holland toddler, her mother, and her mother's boyfriend.

On Friday, Child Protective Services had a court order for an emergency removal of 2-year-old Jontaeshia Hines from the custody of her mother, 27-year-old Tiffany Nichols. When CPS tried to find the mother and the girl for the removal, they found the mother may have fled with the girl.

Investigators say they believe the two are with Nichols' boyfriend, 42-year-old Jim Lee-Junior Walker. Walker is not the toddler's father. Friday night, police provided pictures of Nichols and Walker, but they hadn't provided one of the missing toddler.

It's believed all three are traveling in a black 2002 Ford Taurus with Michigan license plate DGU7319.

Authorities said the case doesn't meet the criteria for an Amber Alert at this point.
