ORIGINAL: A Morgan Nick Amber Alert has been issued for a 7-year-old girl who was kidnapped from a primary school in Lonoke on Friday.

Police say 7-year-old Victoria Rovnaghi was allegedly taken during recess by her biological mother, 34-year-old Leah Ladan Rovnaghi, who authorities say is suicidal and does not have custodial rights. Authorities say surveillance video shows Leah pulling around the back of the school and picking her child up.

The department is asking locals to be on the lookout for Leah, who is driving a 2017 silver Range Rover Evoke SUV with a sticker on the side that reads, "Owens Murphy Rental." Police say Leah lost custodial rights two weeks ago and is now living in the Maumelle area.

Victoria is described as a white female who stands at 4' and weighs about 65 lbs. She has brown hair and brown eyes. Her mother, Leah, is described as a white female who stands at 5'7". She also has brown hair and brown eyes.
