She is approximately 3 feet tall and weighs 34 pounds.  Her hair was braided on the sides and she was last known to be wearing a lime green shirt and pink and white pants.

She was abducted from a residence on Paul Molbert Rd. in Duson, LA.

Kailey was abducted by her father, Ransom J. Taylor, a 30-year-old black male with brown hair and brown eyes.

He is 5'6" tall and weighs approximately 130 pounds.  

He was last seen wearing black pants, black jacket and black boots.  He has a scar over his left ear.

They were last seen in a 2000 white Pontiac Bonneville bearing Louisiana tags XHM 285.
