Police are searching for a man and child who haven't been seen since a standoff at a southwest Topeka home.

Officers were called to a domestic dispute Saturday afternoon, and a woman told officers her boyfriend was inside with their nearly 2-year-old daughter.

After a nearly four-hour standoff, police entered the home and found no one inside.

Police Lt. Scott Gilchrist said Sunday morning the man and child had not been found.

They have identified the man as Trevor Hughes.

Authorities say they found no signs of foul play inside the home. On Saturday evening, Sgt. Jay Junghans said police didn't consider the incident an abduction and didn't believe the girl was in any danger.
