An abduction suspect remains at large, but the three girls from Black Hawk County he allegedly took are safe after an Amber Alert connected to their disappearance was issued late Wednesday night (July 9, 2014).

The Iowa Department of Public Safety issued the Amber Alert around 10:15 p.m., shortly after Brooklyn Anne-Marie Gaffney, 8, Mia Elaine Gaffney, 6, and Nevaeh Hogan, 8 months, were reported missing. Officials cancelled the state-wide warning an hour later after the girls were found safe in the Waterloo area.

Authorities are not releasing much information about the apparent abduction, however a facebook post by sheriff’s officials in Buchanan County say the suspect remains at large. Officials are looking for Shaun Michael Hogan, a 36-year-old black male with black hair and brown eyes. He’s described as 6’3” tall and 250 pounds.

Hogan is believed to be driving a red, four-door 2001 Pontiac Grand Am, with Iowa license plate number 832 YPC. Anyone seeing Hogan’s car should call 911 or contact local authorities.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) is in charge of the case.
