Family Of Missing Oakland Toddler Frustrated With Investigation’s Lack Of Progress
OAKLAND (KCBS)— It’s been nine weeks since Daphne Webb, who will turn two in a month, disappeared from her father’s SUV. There are still questions as to her whereabouts and family members want information on the investigation.
Webb was left in the vehicle at an East Oakland convenience store with her 87-year-old grandmother who suffers from dementia. Her father John said someone must have taken her.
The father was arrested briefly on suspicion of child endangerment, but was released when prosecutors failed to file charges.
Daphne’s great aunt Roslyn Robinson is trying to stay hopeful.
“Why would you leave your kid in a car on a busy street like this?” she asked.
Robinson said she’s frustrated investigators haven’t talked to the family in at least two weeks.
“Just an update on where are we at with finding her,” was her request.
Oakland police said they’re continuing to work on active leads each day. There’s a $20,000 reward in the case.
