“The investigation by Officers showed Jacob to be coherent and to have cared for Aummua adequately over the past day,” police said.

ORIGINAL STORY: The Sparks Police Department is looking for a missing 9-month-old baby and her father.

SPD is looking for Jacob and Aummua Hoffman. Jacob is the biological father of Aummua.

Police say that on Tuesday, at around 6:00 p.m., Jacob left with Aummua in a white 2017 Ford Fusion with Nevada plates 63A855 headed to an unknown location. They say that in the last week, Jacob has become paranoid and delusional and is having hallucinations.

Jacob was last seen wearing an unknown-color tank top and multi-color cut-off shorts with black shoes. He is possibly sweating profusely due to a medical condition. Aummua was last seen wearing a pink outfit with Minnie Mouse on it.
