San Jose Woman Accused of Abducting Infant Son

Authorities are looking for a 32-year-old woman and her 10-month-old son who she allegedly abducted last month, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office.

Satima Michelle Purnell, a San Jose resident, is accused of kidnapping her son Davione after learning she lost custody of him on July 9, prosecutors said.

Purnell has been missing since then and hasn't been successfully contacted.

Investigators suspect she's traveling with the boy, who suffers from a "serious medical condition," prosecutors said.

Purnell, who also uses the last name Clark, is described as standing about 5 feet 1 inches tall and weighing  120 pounds, according to the district attorney's office.

She has brown eyes, black hair and multiple piercings on her face, particularly on her lips and upper cheek close to her eyes, prosecutors said.

Purnell also has numerous tattoos including a teddy bear on her left bicep and two on her upper left arm with the words "Aaniah" and "Prince," prosecutors said.

She is possibly driving a four-door silver Hyundai with license plate number 6BXN752.

Davione is described as being about 2 feet 3 inches tall and weighing 18 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair, according to the district attorney's office.

Anyone who sees Purnell or has information on her whereabouts is asked to call 911.
