SEATTLE - King County Sheriff's deputies continue to search for a 7-week-old baby girl that is believed to be endangered. Detectives are looking for the infant's mother, Trina Curry, 33.
John, a 29-year-old man who did not want to give his last name, said he met Curry on the streets of Seattle. Both were homeless and became friends, according to John.
"I know she is a very spiritual person," said John. "She loves God and she loves her kids, from what I’ve seen."
John also saw a woman living a hard life with no roof over her head, no job, and her seven children were removed from her care by Child Protective Services. He said Curry was a mother desperate to get her kids back. The King County Sheriff’s Office said she made a dangerous move.
Curry gave birth to her eighth child at Highline Medical Center on July 17. She checked out of the hospital under a fake name with the newborn.
Detectives said Curry was not allowed to be with her seven other children based on allegations of abuse, neglect, and mental health issues. The baby's father, Quandra Powell, is also a concern for law enforcement. The sheriff’s office said Powell has warrants out for his arrest for drug and parole violations.
It is possible Powell, Curry, and the baby are together, according to detectives.
John has not seen Curry since late last year, and he wants to talk with her now more than ever.
If he had the chance he'd tell her, "you’ve got people on your side that would really like for you to just do the right thing, especially for the kids' sake."
Anyone with information about the baby's whereabouts is asked to call the King County Sheriff's office at 206-296-3311.
