Suspect in Rhode Island abduction may be in Washington, officials say



Daniel Britt, age 6. He is 4 foot 3, 50 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes.


Andria Britt, age 34. She is 5 foot 5 with brown hair and brown eyes.

The suspect in a Rhode Island Amber Alert may be in Washington state, the Washington State Patrol said.

On Jan. 15, the Rhode Island State Police issued an Amber Alert for 6-year-old Daniel Britt, according to a WSP news release. He is believed to be with his non-custodial mother Andria Britt, who failed to show for a custody hearing and a judge in Rhode Island determined there was a risk of immediate harm to the child. The child involved went missing between Jan. 7 and 9.

Rhode Island State Police contacted WSP on Jan. 16 with information that the suspect may be in Washington state, and may now be in a vehicle with Washington plates.

The WSP has not issued an Amber Alert in Washington state at this time, but would like the public to be aware of the alert issued from Rhode Island and to call 911 immediately if they see the following child, suspect and/or these two vehicles:

  • Gray 1992 Chevrolet Astro Van with Washington registration, ABR1512
  • Red Ford Focus with Rhode Island registration 942649.
