Law Enforcement Looking for Warren County Father Accused of Abducting Daughter
Update at 3:00 p.m.: One of two people suspected of kidnapping a toddler Monday night in Bowling Green has been arrested. Sabrina Vanmeter was found Tuesday at a home on Jack Simmons Road. She was taken to the Warren County Regional Jail.
The Warren County Sheriff’s office is looking for a non-custodial father who’s accused of kidnapping his child from a home in Bowling Green.
Twenty-five-year-old Robert Pomeroy allegedly broke into the home of the child's mother on Scottsville Road Monday night and snatched the 18-month-old girl from a bathtub.
Pomeroy then fled with the child and his girlfriend Sabrina Vanmeter in an off-white, late-model, four-door Lexus. An Amber Alert was not issued.
"It has a lot to do with who the suspect is, whether it's a non-custodial parent or if there's insufficient evidence that the child is in harm's way, it doesn't meet criteria," said Public Information Officer Stephen Harmon in the Warren County Sheriff’s Office. "Certainly for the integrity of the Amber Alert system, you want to make sure when it's activated that it meets criteria and this case did not."
Robert Pomeroy is described as 5'10" tall, 180 pounds with a shaved head and thin beard. He was last seen wearing a black shirt and camouflage pants.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Warren County Sheriff’s Office at (270) 842-1633.
