KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — Update | The KBI said Brixton Sisk was found safely. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol arrested the suspects.

Original story | An Amber Alert has been issued for a 5-year-old boy in Rose Hill, Kansas.

Brixton Sisk is 4-feet tall and weighs 75 pounds. He has blonde hair and blue eyes.

Authorities report he was last seen at Rosehill Elementary School, 409 E School St., in Rose Hill, Kansas.

He is said to be wearing gray sweatpants, a green t-shirt, black shoes and carrying a blue blanket.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said a woman entered Rosehill Elementary School’s daycare posing as a social worker. Under such identification, she was able to access Brixton and leave the school with him in either a “black Suburban (not Tahoe) and it has a paper temporary tag."

KBI identifies the woman as Danielle Banzet, who is Brixton’s mother but had her parental rights severed by the court.

Banzet is described as 5’4”, 125 pounds, 31 years old and has brown eyes. She is said to be wearing a long red and white dress with glasses and long blonde hair — her hair was dyed after her driver's license photo was taken.

Along with Banzet, who authorities say was in the front passenger seat of the vehicle, an unknown male driver was operating the suspect vehicle.

Around 7 p.m., the KBI issued an update that Banzet, the unknown male and Brixton switched vehicles to a dark gray 2010 Volkswagen Jetta with Kansas license plate 461NWF.

The KBI said at around 9 p.m. that the Jetta was located. However, Banzet, the male and Brixton had still not been located.

Due to previous threats of violence, authorities believe Brixton is in imminent danger.

Anyone who sees Brixton, Banzet and/or the suspect vehicle(s) is asked to call 911.
