Pennsylvania authorities have issued an Amber Alert for a missing 6-year-old girl they believe is at risk for harm and issued a warrant for her mother, who is also missing.
Vanessa Gutshall, 37, and Zoe Moss, 6, were last seen at about 8 p.m. at the Rivertowne Restaurant & Bar in Wrightsville, Fox Philadelphia reported.
Officials said Gutshall fled with her biological daughter during a court-ordered, non-school related visit at East Ward Elementary School in Downingtown at about 6 p.m.

“It is imperative that we find Zoe Moss immediately because of the potentially dangerous situation she is in with her mother,” Chester County District Attorney Deb Ryan said. “Just because her mother is involved does not mean she is in less danger.”
An Amber Alert issued by the Pennsylvania State Police said authorities believe Moss “may be at special risk of harm or injury.”
Police are searching for the pair as well as a gray 2016 VW Jetta with the license plate number KXR-3699.
Moss is described as 3-feet 8-inches tall, 50 pounds with light brown hair and blue eyes. Gutshall, who police say was last seen wearing blue sweatpants, is 5-foot 2 inches, weighs 100 pounds with light brown hair and blue eyes.
