"My 2-year old says she's gone,” Courtney Bell told a Newton County 911 operator. “I've looked everywhere in the house and I don't know another possibility.”
The operator asked Bell if she believed somebody took her baby.
"Her blanket is gone,” Bell said. “Her pacifier is on the floor. Her blanket is not with us.”
Bell told the operator she fell asleep on the couch inside her home. Bell says she last saw Caliyah at 5 a.m. on Saturday. Five hours later, she called 911.
"Me and him (Christopher McNabb) woke up together. She (2-year old daughter) woke us up together," said Bell.
The baby's father, McNabb, has been a person of interest since the baby's death. He was arrested on an unrelated charge, a probation violation out of Bartow County, after attempting to elude deputies on Sunday, according to investigators.
