UPDATE: Thursday, July 11, 2013

The Amber Alert for a missing Tulsa child has been canceled. The child was found safe and the father has been taken into custody.

Police report the child was found just before 5 p.m. near Peoria Avenue and 46th Street North.


Tulsa authorities have issued an Amber Alert for a 2-year-old girl after she was "forcibly taken from her daycare."

Tulsa Police announced the Amber Alert after 2:30 p.m. when Unique Gill was taken from the daycare located near the 5900 block of S. Peoria Ave. Witnesses told officers that Shannon Dean reportedly entered the daycare and grabbed the 2-year-old from the arms of a worker and left the scene.

According to the release from TPD, "Dean left in a navy blue Nissan Murano possibly a 2006 model with tinted windows." He also has an outstanding felony warrant for domestic assault and battery with a $10,000 fine.

"There is a current protective order in place for Unique and her mother listing Dean as the defendant. He is to have no contact with the child and is considered a non-custodial parent," the release further described.

Dean is considered dangerous as he is a heavy drug user and had a smell of alcohol about his person. Dean is a Tulsa resident but it is unknown where he may be currently staying.

Police describe him as being a black male 170 pounds and 6 foot 2 inches in height. Dean has black hair and brown eyes.

A citizen should call 911 if they see the suspect or the suspect vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or text TIP918 to CRIMES.
