Trying to Locate Family and Mother

UPDATE:  The mother of 4 year-old Shafyalya Nicks has been found.

On September 28, 2015, at 10:08am, Hartford Police Department Patrol Officers were dispatched to 182 Collins Street on a report of a found 4 year-old girl. Officers learned that a citizen had been driving down the street and noticed the young child wandering alone. Upon further investigation, Patrol Officers identified the address of 150 Collins Street as where the little girl (Shafyalya Nicks age 4) resides. No one was located inside the apartment, but mail revealed that a Shi'day Nicks 22yo, also lives there. According to neighbors, Shi'day Nicks just moved into the apartment building and is not well known by neighbors.

The child was in good health and in the care of CT DCF. However, the Hartford Police Department is trying to locate any family of Shafyalya Nicks. At the same time we are also trying to locate Shi'day Nicks. Shi'day Nicks' previous addresses are Orange Street in Springfield, MA and 23RD St. in Meridian Mississippi.

Photos of the Shafyalya Nicks and Shi'day Nicks are attached. Anyone with information on the whereabouts or family contact for either of these two individuals is asked to contact Sergeant E. D. Baidy Jr of Special Investigations Division at 860-757-4276 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
