Angel Nichole Overstreet, 3 months old, has blue eyes and dark-colored hair with a reddish tint. She has a strawberry-shaped mark on the back of her neck.

HUNTINGTON — The Huntington Police Department is working with multiple agencies to search a pond on the property of a father whose 3-month-old baby, Angel Nichole Overstreet, has been missing for more than a month.

According to Huntington communications director Bryan Chambers, the police department is working with multiple agencies to search a pond in Carter County, Kentucky. The pond is located on property owned by Shannon Overstreet, the father of the missing baby.

“At this point, no one has been eliminated as the suspect in the disappearance of Angel,” Chambers said.

Police have called Shannon Overstreet a “person of interest” but not a suspect in the case.

Angel Overstreet is described as a white infant girl with blue eyes and dark-colored hair with a reddish tint. She has a strawberry-shaped mark on the back of her neck.

The child was reported missing to police by representatives of West Virginia Child Protective Services (CPS) in May after they had been asked to follow up with Shannon Overstreet regarding custody issues stemming from Kentucky.

Overstreet told Huntington police and CPS he relinquished custody of the child two weeks prior to CPS from West Virginia; however, West Virginia CPS has no record of such transfer. Police determined the child was last in his custody May 1.

Multiple search warrants have been executed in West Virginia and Kentucky, along with several interviews, but the child has not been found.

Anyone with information can contact HPD at 304-696-4420 or via its anonymous tip line at 304-696-4444.

Overstreet is housed at Western Regional Jail on charges of felony malicious wounding and misdemeanor battery in an unrelated case.
