By Andrew Donley, ABC 3340

Mothers at Tom Brown Village are on high alert, now five days after Kamille “Cupcake” McKinney vanished.

As the sun set on the community that has been in the dark about the well-being of the innocent 3 year old girl for the better part of a week, Jasmaine Deloach pulled tape posting fliers around the communty.

“Do you have children?” asked Andrew Donley. “Ya I have a child who was a human trafficking victim.” said Deloach.

Her daughter was taken when she 16, it wasn’t until 2 months later she got her back.

“You can’t eat, you can’t sleep you can’t do nothing. I couldn’t even bath, I couldn’t do nothing. I just literally went nuts, crazy you know looking for my baby,” said Deloach.

It’s something she wants no mother to feel.

“I mean nobody expects it but in the midst of it all, things happen,” said Deloach.

“You don’t know what’s going to happen,” said mother of three Sarah Venable.

McKinney’s abduction happened literally in Venables backyard.

She brought Her three kids in about 30 minutes before the abduction.

“It’s heartbreaking, I can’t imagine what the parents feel,” said Venable.

And she hopes she never does.

“Hold your kids right, don’t let them out of your sight, especially out here,” said Venable.

The reward for information that leads to the arrest of those responsible for McKinney’s disappearance and her recovery is set for $25,000.
