Grandma Murdered & 10-Month-Old Baby Abducted From Her Care

Saavni VennaWith every missing child story, there's an overwhelming fear that washes over you. But there's something particularly chilling about the search for missing baby Saanvi Venna. The grandmother of the 10-month-old from King of Prussia, Pennsylvania was murdered the same morning the little girl was abducted.

For cops the murder only adds to the frustrating mystery of where Saanvi is and who took her. And it makes the search for this girl that much more desperate.


If the person who took Saanvi is the same person who murdered 61-year-old Satyavathi Venna, then this precious little baby is in the hands of a killer. I hate to think of anything bad happening to an innocent child, but I can't help it. I'm afraid for her.

Call me a cynic, but in the past few weeks each of the children who have gone missing have been found dead. With Jessica Ridgeway and Autumn Pasquale, we didn't know in advance much about their kidnappers. We didn't know if they would be inclined to hold on to the girls or to kill them.

But it's pretty fair to guess that the person or persons who snatched little Saanvi away is violent. The little girl was home with grandma who was babysitting on Monday morning. But sometime between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m., she went missing, and grandma was killed. Now the search for this little girl is commingled with a family's grief over a loss of a loved one, and a fear. This family needs help ... desperately.

The girl's father, Shiva Venna, has already released a plea to the kidnapper to bring his little girl home, and an official Amber Alert has been released. The 10-month-old is described as having black hair and brown eyes. She's about 21 pounds and 2 1/2 feet tall. She was last seen in a white dress with pink flowers and unknown jewelry.

Will you spread this information to help get Saanvi home? What do you make of this awful crime?
