Desperate hunt for 2-year-old girl kidnapped by her meth addict parents from a South Carolina home A MONTH AGO

Dakota Ray, a 2-year-old girl who has been missing since last month from Camden was found Thursday in northeast Iowa.

Jessica Ray, the missing child's mother, is believed to be in possession of the missing child illegally in defiance of an ex parte order from Kershaw County DSS.

On Friday morning, police in SC and Minnesota said the toddler was located Thursday following bulletins from police and from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Law enforcement then received information that they may now be in southwest Minnesota.

The family are believed to be travelling in a 1996 Ford Aerostar van and frequently changing license plates to avoid detection.

According to the Camden Police Department, they may be asking strangers for money.

Dakota is 2 years old.
