DUNKIRK – Federal investigators are dialing in their search for a missing baby and her fugitive mother to northern Chautauqua County.
The U.S. Marshall’s Office is looking for 35-year-old Adrienne Grace Marean who allegedly fled West Virginia earlier in March after fleeing with 11-month-old Iris Chidester.
Marean, Marshalls say, is wanted for allegedly violating a Harrison County Family Court Order to transfer custody of her child in February 2022.
Federal investigators are now focusing the search on the Dunkirk and Fredonia areas.
Marean is believed to be driving a gray Toyota Prius with New York license plate, JJR1907.
She is described as a white female, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs approximately 165 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.
11-month-old Chidester is a white female with brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Marean or the missing child is asked to call the U.S. Marshals Service at 304-623-0486 or contact 911. Tips may also be submitted via the USMS Tips app.
