Two-week old Caliyah McNabb was reported missing by her mother on Saturday in Newton County.
A 911 call obtained by Channel 2 Action News reveals a 2-year old child was the first person to notice her newborn sister disappeared.
"My 2-year old says she's gone. I've looked everywhere in the house and I don't know another possibility," said Cortney Bell to a Newton County 911 operator.

The operator asked Bell if she believed somebody took her baby.
"Her blanket is gone. Her pacifier is on the floor. Her blanket is not with us," said Bell.
Bell told the operator she fell asleep on the couch inside her home. Bell says she last saw Caliyah at 5 a.m. on Saturday. Five hours later, she called 911.
"Me and him (Christopher McNabb) woke up together. She (2-year old daughter) woke us up together," said Bell.
The baby's father, McNabb, had been a person of interest since the baby's death. He was arrested on an unrelated charge, a probation violation out of Bartow County, after attempting to elude deputies on Sunday, according to investigators.
McNabb’s first appearance will be inside the Newton County Jail Thursday morning.
