Authorities in Rhode Island say that a missing 6-year-old Rhode Island boy may be in Washington, according to Washington State Patrol.

Troopers were contacted today by the Rhode Island State Police, who said that they believe that Daniel Britt may be in the state with his non-custodial mother Andria Britt.

Daniel Britt reportedly went missing between Jan. 7 and 9 after Andria Britt failed to show up for a custodial hearing, according to a press release issued by state patrol. A Rhode Island judge determined there was a risk of immediate harm to the child, according to the release.

Authorities say Andria Britt may be traveling in one of two vehicles: a gray 1992 Chevrolet Astro Van with Washington plates ABR1512 or a red Ford Focus with Rhode Island plates 942649.

Washington State Patrol has not issued an Amber Alert but asks that anyone who spots Daniel Britt, Andria Britt or the described vehicles call 911 immediately.
