Danville, Virginia, police said Emma Grace Kennedy was taken by her father, 51-year-old Carl Ray Kennedy, at a Kwik Stop. The gas station is about three hours southwest of Richmond on the North Carolina border.

Virginia State Police issued an Amber Alert and said the infant is believed to be in “extreme danger.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Authorities said Carl Kennedy is registered as a sex offender in Asheboro, which is 30 minutes south of Greensboro, North Carolina. He’s currently out of jail on a $250,000 bond on a drug distribution charge.

North Carolina’s sex offender registry says Kennedy committed the misdemeanor crime of sexual battery. That means he engaged in sexual contact with someone against his or her will or with someone who was mentally disabled or physically incapacitated, according to the state’s criminal code.
