BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Police looking for a missing 3-year-old girl in Birmingham, Alabama, have swarmed around a residential area a few miles from where she was last seen.

Authorities haven’t said exactly what’s going on in their search for Kamille McKinney. But they say they’ll provide an update as the search continues Wednesday.

Live video from news outlets shows police blocking off a street and the sound of a helicopter overhead.

Authorities say the girl known as “Cupcake” to her family was snatched away from a birthday party outside a housing project in Birmingham on Saturday night.

A man and a woman described as persons of interest were arrested and charged with crimes that police say are unrelated to the girl’s disappearance. But police say they don’t know where the child might be.
