MARIONVILLE, Mo. – Area law enforcement officials are seeking a 46-year-old man suspected in the abduction of the man’s 11-year-old daughter Monday morning in Marionville.

Andrew Smith, non-custodial parent of Danielle Smith, has abducted the girl in the past and has shown a history of abuse, according to an Endangered Person Advisory issued this morning by the Missouri Highway Patrol and Aurora Police Department.

Andrew Smith, thought to be driving a white 2011 Mazda 6 with Texas license plates BT3-T02, and a second male, reportedly took the girl two blocks from Marionville Elementary a little before 8 a.m. Monday, according to school officials.  Smith does not have custody of the child, the advisory said.

Superintendent Larry Brown said another school employee observed the girl being taken and noted the license plate of the auto. The girl appeared to be trying to get out of the car and was being held back by one of the two men in the car.

The school’s security camera captured an image of the car.

“Fortunately, this is not normal for us here,” Brown said, “but we have done everything we know how to do from our standpoint to assist law enforcement.”

Danielle Monica Smith is described as a white female, 4 foot, 8 inches tall, weighing 77 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a white hooded sweatshirt over a pink hooded sweatshirt, gray t-shirt and military style green and white pants.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the subjects may be near Tulsa, Oklahoma at this time. 

Anyone seeing Danielle, Andrew, or the suspect vehicle, or anyone who has information related to this incident is asked to immediately dial 911 or call the Aurora Police Department at 417-678-5025.
