Greece Police, along with federal, state and local authorities continue their urgent search for two missing children who police say could be in imminent danger.

An Amber Alert was issued at about midnight Monday night for two small kids police say were abducted from a home on English Rd. in Greece at about 8:40 p.m.

One child is identified as Shekeria Cash, approximately 3 years old, described as a Black female with braided, black hair and brown eyes. She’s about 4' tall and weighs about 40 lbs. and was last seen wearing panda pajamas.

The other child is identified as Dimitri Cash Jr., approximately 5 years old, described as a Black male with short, black hair and brown eyes. He is also about 4' tall and weighs about 50 lbs. Dimitri was last seen wearing either fire truck or dinosaur pajamas.

Greece Police Chief Drew Forsythe said two men broke a front window of the house, where seven foster children were living. Once inside, he said the two men duct-taped the woman living there and two of her children. The suspects then went upstairs and grabbed Shekeria and Dimitri and got away from the house, taking the homeowner’s van and later abandoning it on Whitehall Drive.

The Amber Alert describes two suspects, one as a Black male about 6' 1" and weighing about 175 lbs. He was last seen wearing a flannel shirt, Dickies work pants, black ski mask, black knit hat and he has facial hair.

The other suspect is described as a Black male about 6' 1" and weighing about 200 lbs. He was last seen wearing a flannel shirt, Dickies work pants, black ski mask and black knit hat.

Forsythe is not calling the children’s biological father, Dimitri Cash, a suspect right now, but he said police do want to interview him.

Anyone with any information on this abduction is asked to call the Town of Greece Police Department at 585-428-6666 or dial 911 to provide information on a report or sighting.
