'Textbook definition' of human traffickers

Morales said Higgins is the "textbook definition" of the kind of individuals law enforcement is confronting when battling human trafficking, urging anyone who is harboring Noelani to drop the child off at a safe place like a hospital, police station, school or church.

"If you release Noelani now and she is not harmed, you will likely not be prosecuted," Morales said.

"However, if you continue to hold Noelani in your possession, we'll eventually find you and her and you will be prosecuted to the highest degree of the law."

The woman who was wounded in the shooting told police that Higgins is her and Robinson's former pimp and the father of Noelani.

She said Robinson and Higgins stayed together after Robinson became pregnant but that Robinson broke off the relationship in February and moved to Las Vegas, leaving Noelani with Higgins.

The woman said Higgins was living in Miami when he agreed to meet Robinson in Milwaukee to return the child to her, and the two women met Higgins on Monday.

The child was not with Higgins, and while driving around the three talked about old times and smoked marijuana.

Girl's mother had no ID

Milwaukee Police Capt. Thomas Casper, head of the department's homicide division, said Sierra Robinson had no identification on her when she was pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting.

Her fingerprints were not on file locally and investigators had to contact law enforcement agencies in other states and resort to social media to determine her identification and finally locate her family in Oklahoma.

"There was a mad scramble to identify this victim, find her family, find out if she really had children, get names, get photographs," Casper said.

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm asked anybody who knows anybody involved with Higgins, Sierra Robinson or the wounded woman to contact authorities and share any information they have about them.

"You might not think it's important information, you might not think it's relevant, please provide it to us and let us determine that," Chisholm said.

"Our only interest here is to locate that little girl, make sure she's safe and return her to her family."

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett also noted the vulnerability of Noelani to the dangers of the world she was born into.

"This is about the horrible intersection between human trafficking, violence and a little girl," Barrett said.

Morales would not disclose whether Noelani's custody status or location before Monday had been established, only that she was seen before her mother was killed, though he could not say where or when.

"The world that these individuals lived in, they traveled throughout numerous states," Morales said.

"That's why we're asking the nation for help."
