A felony arrest warrant was obtained Thursday for Lopez.

Lopez is described to be 5-foot-7,160 pounds, dyed red hair and currently five months pregnant. She was last seen wearing a purple long-sleeved shirt, blue jeans, possibly glasses and had a floral backpack.

The toddler has short, curly brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink & white long sleeve shirt, jean jacket with a pink trim, blue jeans, and pink & white light-up shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call 9-1-1 immediately.
