STAUNTON, Va. (AP) — Authorities in western Virginia are searching for a 3-year-old girl who has been unaccounted for since February.

Augusta County Sheriff Donald Smith said that Khaleesi Cuthriell was in the care of Candi Royer from October until January of this year, but hasn’t been seen since, news outlets reported.

Royer was reported missing Sept. 3, and that’s when authorities learned of Khaleesi. She was entered as a missing person Sept. 8.

Royer and Travis Brown were arrested in Pennsylvania on Sept. 12 in connection with the case, Smith said. They face several charges, including abuse and neglect of a child.

Investigators said Royer and Brown will be extradited to Virginia.
