Amber Alert issued for missing infant

An Amber Alert has been issued as the Ludington Police Department searches for a missing child believed to be in extreme danger.

On Thursday Luding Police announced they are looking for potential witnesses who were seen launching a blue and white boat at the Hackert Lake/Crystal Lake public boat launch on Wednesday afternoon.

The U.S. Coast Guard and FBI have joined the search for a missing 4˝-month-old western Michigan girl.

Police say the child, named Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips, was last seen in the 900 block of E. Tinkham in Ludington around 1:15 pm Wednesday. The child is described as four and a half months old, two feet tall weighing twelve pounds with blue eyes and no hair.

The child was last seen wearing pink shorts, and a matching pink tank top with black and pink flowers.

Ludington Police believe the child was abducted by 21-year-old Sean Michael Phillips. Police say they have found Phillips, but Katherine is still missing.

Police say they first responded to the mother's apartment on Wednesday afternoon for a civil disturbance call, but quickly realized that something more serious was underway as the mother said her daughter had been abducted by Sean Michael Phillips.

Phillips was arraigned Thursday on a single charge of kidnapping. He is due in court for a preliminary hearing on July 13th.

Police say they found Phillips late Wednesday afternoon at a home near Millerton Road and US-31, but Phillips would not say where the infant was, or if he knew where she was.

Mother of missing Ludington infant, Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips, remains hopeful as she searches

Ludington infant Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips has been missing for 24 hours, but her mother is hopeful she will be found alive.

Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips, 4 months
Ariel Courtland, 19, appealed to anyone who finds her 4-month-old daughter to feed her. She said "Baby Kate" is teething, and has been a little fussy, but is otherwise a "happy-go-lucky" baby.

"I can't eat or sleep," she said. "I want to know where my daughter's at and that she's safe."

She said she doesn't believe Sean Michael Phillips, the baby's father and her alleged abducter, gave their daughter to anyone else.

"I think if anything, he just left her somewhere," she said. "Nobody's getting anything out of him now."

Missing Ludington baby's grandmother on the suspect and her daughter: 'They've had their issues'


Sean Michael Phillips

Just days earlier, April Lange was marveling at how well "Katerbugger" was rolling over, for a 4-month-old.

On Thursday, she sat at a police press conference, crying quietly as Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola said the man accused of kidnapping her granddaughter wasn't giving any clues to the baby's whereabouts.

Katherine Shelbe-Elizabeth Phillips was kidnapped at about 1 p.m. Wednesday by Sean Michael Phillips, according to police. Phillips, 21, was arrested at his parents' home in Scottville a few hours later, but the baby wasn't with him. Police have searched the area around the Phillips' home and followed a tip at Crystal Lake, but have yet to find Kate.

Lange said her 19-year-old daughter, Ariel Courtland, and Phillips had had their disagreements, particularly after Courtland got pregnant with Kate. The two have a 3-year-old daughter together, she said, but Phillips' parents didn't approve of the relationship. Phillips has not been established as Kate's father in court.

“They’ve both had their issues, because of age and stuff,” she said. “They’re both young and childish.”

The two had argued before Phillips took Kate, Lange said.

Authorities continue search for missing baby

The mother of a missing 4 1/2-month-old west Michigan girl says the child's father has indicated the infant is still alive.

Ariel Courtland told the Ludington Daily News that she spoke with 21-year-old Sean Phillips on Friday evening.

Police scoured the area between the Ludington apartment where Katherine Phillips lives with her mother and the Scottville home of Sean Phillips.

Katherine Phillips last was seen Wednesday wearing pink shorts and a matching pink tank top with black and pink flowers.
Courtland says her daughter was in the car when Phillips drove off Wednesday afternoon from her apartment, 80 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

The baby was not with Phillips when he was arrested. He faces kidnapping and child enticement charges.

Phillips was arraigned Thursday and remains held on $500,000 bond.

Ludington Police say they have found clothing worn by the missing 4-month-old girl‎

Ludington Police said Saturday they have found articles of clothing that 4-month-old Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips was wearing when she was abducted from her Ludington apartment Wednesday.

Police did not disclose during a Saturday news conference where the clothing was found, the Ludington Daily News reported.

The infant was last seen wearing a one-piece outfit — white with black polka dots, pink straps and black and pink flowers when she was abducted from the Ludington apartment where she lives with her mother, Ariel Courtland.

Police have been searching the area between Birch Lake Apartments, 922 E. Tinkham, where Courtland lived with her two daughters, and the Scottville home of Sean Michael Phillips, who Courtland says is the baby’s father.

Phillips was charged Thursday with kidnapping the infant. He was being held in the Mason County Jail, in lieu of $500,000 bond.

Law enforcement teams were searching the area of Mason County bounded by U.S. 31, Fountain Road, Amber Road and Dewey Road Friday. Phillips' parents' home, at 280 W. Millerton, Scottville, is within that area.

Courtland, who visited Phillips in jail, said he told her Friday that Katherine is alive.

Police ask for help finding missing baby

Authorities in Ludington, Mich., are asking for volunteers to help search for a missing 4-month-old girl.

Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips was taken from her mother Ariel Courtland's car between 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday by the baby's father, The Muskegon Chronicle reported.

Courtland stepped out of her car only for a minute to talk with Sean Michael Phillips in front the Birch Lake Apartments, when she lived. The two were having an argument about parenting techniques when Courtland, 19, said Phillips, 21, abruptly took off with his daughter, and when police caught up with him hours late, he did not have the child.

Blue Lake fire chief: Blood, footprint found near kidnapping suspect Sean Michael Phillips' parents' home‎

The Blue Lake Township Search and Rescue Team found blood on a tree and a footprint near the Scottville-area home where kidnapping suspect Sean Michael Phillips was arrested, according to the Blue Lake Township fire chief.

Blue Lake Fire Chief Larry Radtke said the rescue team had been called up Tuesday to assist Ludington police in searching a swath of woods about a half-mile long and 250 yards wide about six miles north of Scottville, near Phillips' parents home, 280 Millerton.

"They needed more resources yesterday," Radtke said Wednesday morning. "We were just searching for any evidence of the baby."

Phillips has been charged with kidnapping 4-month-old Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips and is lodged at the Mason County Jail. He is not cooperating with the investigation, police said.

State police are analyzing the blood to determine if it is human and attempting to extract DNA, Radtke said.

"We have no idea whether it was the baby's blood or not," he said, adding that the sample would likely have to be analyzed at the state police crime lab in Lansing. "Depending on their case load, this could take weeks, but I imagine this is a high priority."

Evidence specialists also are comparing the footprint with the shoes Phillips was wearing when he was arrested, Radtke said.

Authorities say blood was not found during search for missing 'Baby Kate' from Ludington; Land search continues

As authorities continue an extensive search for a missing 4-month-old Ludington girl, investigators have said that blood was not found near Scottville, contrary to what searchers had told reporters.

Ludington Police, in a press release, say that reports that blood had been found and that investigators were trying to determine if it belonged to missing Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips are “not accurate.”

A substance was located that turned out to be “bird feces” after it was tested at the Michigan State Police lab, Ludington Police said.

The baby, known as “Baby Kate,” has been missing since June 29 after her mother, Ariel Samantha Courtland, 19, said Sean Michael Phillips, 21, took her around 1 p.m. that day outside Courtland’s home in Birch Lake Apartments, 922 E. Tinkham, and fled.

Courtland and Phillips have a 3-year-old daughter together. Phillips has denied being Kate's biological father, but Courtland claims he fathered the child.

Phillips remained lodged in the Mason County Jail Thursday, charged with kidnapping. Authorities say he's been uncooperative since he was arrested at his parents’ house, 280 Millerton, in Scottville, the same day he allegedly took the baby.

His vehicle was confiscated and searched, but the child was not found and an Amber Alert was issued later.

Attorney Annette Smedley, of Muskegon, is representing Phillips, according to a Mason County District Court official.

Smedley couldn't be reached for comment.

Since Phillips has retained an attorney, authorities can no longer interrogate him, police said.

The case has made headlines across the nation, bringing volunteers from several states out to help find her. Authorities and volunteers searching for the baby have covered miles of woods in the Ludington and Scottville areas.

Ludington's Baby Kate remains missing; Preliminary examination for accused kidnapper, Sean Michael Phillips, scheduled for Wednesday

The search for missing Ludington baby Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips will continue this week as authorities regroup and continue to field tips from the public about the child's whereabouts.

Authorities spent all weekend looking for the missing 4-month-old girl, most recently in the Millerton Road area in Mason County's Victory Township where the parents of her accused abductor, Sean Michael Phillips, 21, live.

The eight-day search of that swampy, heavily wooded area ended Sunday, producing no new information that would help authorities solve the case. No new volunteer search was planned Monday.

An official said Monday that new searches will be planned for later this week.

Reward Fund Established For Baby Kate; New Search Planned

Ludington police announced Monday that a reward fund has been established in the search for 4-month-old Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips. They also called for volunteers to join a search for “Baby Kate” in the School Forest area starting at 3:30 pm Tuesday.

Katherine Phillips was last seen around 1:10 pm on June 29 when Sean Michael Phillips drove away from her mother Ariel Courtland’s Ludington home with her after an argument about paternity. Phillips is the father of Courtland’s older daughter and is believed to be Katherine’s father, according to Courtland’s mother April Lange, but a paternity test had not been done yet.

Phillips was arrested hours later at his parents’ house in Scottville, but Katherine was not with him and he has not told authorities what happened to her. Police did recover the clothes she was last seen wearing, but they have not revealed where they found them.

Phillips is being held on $500,000 bond on a kidnapping charge. He has retained an attorney and has a preliminary examination scheduled for Wednesday.

Mother of missing Ludington 'Baby Kate' says adoption discussed, paternity test planned on day baby disappeared

The mother of Ludington's missing "Baby Kate" said Sean Michael Phillips couldn't bear to tell his parents he had fathered another child, so he took the baby and mother to a Department of Human Services office in an attempt to give the infant up for adoption hours before the child disappeared.

The baby's mother, Ariel Courtland, 19, told The Chronicle that on June 29, the day her infant was allegedly abducted by Phillips, he drove all three of them to the Mason County DHS office in Ludington, intending on giving Kate up for adoption. That effort ended when Courtland refused, she said.

Courtland said Phillips, 21, now charged with kidnapping in connection with the baby's disappearance, has always known he is the father of Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips, but didn't have the heart to tell his parents.

Courtland said Tuesday that Phillips' parents have never met the infant, but are aware she exists.

“I wanted him to take a DNA test that day because he didn't want to tell his parents that Kate is his. I was sick of it and said, 'Forget it, I'm not going to keep lying to your parents,' and we figured if he gets the paternity test, then we could show his parents the piece of paper,” Courtland said.

Preliminary hearing postponed until Aug. 3 in Ludington missing 'Baby Kate' case

A preliminary examination for 21-year-old Sean Michael Phillips, charged with kidnapping in the disappearance of a missing 5-month-old Ludington girl, has been postponed until Aug. 3.

The preliminary hearing, scheduled for 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, was rescheduled after Phillips' attorney, Annette Smedley, said she had not had time to review all police reports in the case.

The baby, Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips, has been missing since June 29. Her mother, 19-year-old Ariel Courtland, said Phillips drove away with the infant that day after arguing with Courtland. Phillips and Courtland have a 3 1/2-year-old daughter together, and Courtland says Phillips is "Baby Kate's" father, but no paternity test has been conducted to determine that

Extensive 3-week search hasn't turned up Ludington baby; police say leads still coming in‎

Ludington police say a three-week search has turned up nothing that would lead investigators to 5-month-old Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips.

Although the search has ended, Police Chief Mark Barnett says the investigation is ongoing and leads are still coming in.

Barnett won't say whether he believes the child is dead or was given to someone else.

He tells The Muskegon Chronicle for a story Friday "both possibilities are in play."

Katherine lived with her mother, Ariel Courtland, at an apartment in Ludington, about 80 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

Sean Phillips is believed to be the child's father. He faces a kidnapping charge and is being held in the Mason County jail.

The Ludington Daily News reports the baby last was seen in Phillips' vehicle outside the apartment in late June.

Psychoanalyst doubts reasoning for disappearance of Baby Kate given by mother‎

Nancy Grace brought attention to the case of Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips who is also known as “Baby Kate" on her July 22, 2011 HLN program. The now five month old infant has been missing since June 29, 2011 after the man believed to be her biological father, Sean Michael Phillips, drove off with her in his vehicle, leaving Kate’s mother behind. The three were headed to a hospital where paternity testing awaited Kate and her mom, Ariel Courtland. Courtland, 19, says the goal was to prove that Sean Phillips, 21, was the Michigan infant’s birth father so that a court order could be placed forcing him to pay child support. Courtland has also told authorities that Phillips did not want his parents to know the couple had another child. Psychoanalyst Bethany Marshall spoke live on the Nancy Grace show and addressed some of the reasons Phillips may have had for the abduction. An Amber Alert was issued for Baby Kate and at this point, authorities will not say whether they believe Kate is alive or dead.

Taking issue with the claim that Phillips was motivated by his parents Bethany Marshall stated, “I don`t for one minute believe the reason this happened is that he didn`t want to tell his parents. I think he was just manipulating the mother of the baby.

“I think he had a desperate plan all along. He hoped he could give the baby up for adoption, but I don`t really think that was the plan. I think that there was desperation, a compulsion to commit homicide that was building up because he did not want to pay for child support for this baby for the rest of his life. And we know, a financial incentive.”

Leads still arriving in case of missing Mich. baby

Ludington police say a three-week search has turned up nothing that would lead investigators to 5-month-old Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips.

Although the search has ended, Police Chief Mark Barnett says the investigation is ongoing and leads are still coming in.

Barnett won't say whether he believes the child is dead or was given to someone else.

He tells The Muskegon Chronicle for a story Friday "both possibilities are in play."

Ludington's Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips has been missing one month today, mother devastated‎

One long, excruciating month has passed since Ariel Courtland has held, touched, kissed or rocked her newborn baby girl, last seen in the backseat of her estranged boyfriend's vehicle on June 29.

“I want my daughter back home safe and sound,” the 19-year-old Ludington mother said of her infant, Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips.

“I want her home. I don't understand why it's taking so long to get her home. They have searched every place possible and still nothing.”

Sean Michael Phillips, 21, the man believed to be the infant's father, allegedly drove away with the infant around 1 p.m. on June 29.

Phillips has been charged with kidnapping and is being held on $500,000 bond in the Mason County Jail. He has refused to cooperate with authorities about the whereabouts of the child.
