(Newser) – "We're going to find her if it's the last thing I do on this earth," says Dominic McKinney, whose 3-year-old daughter, Kamille "Cupcake" McKinney, was kidnapped from a birthday party in Birmingham, Ala., on Saturday night. Police say a major breakthrough in the case was made Sunday night, when a "person of interest" was located and taken into custody, but the little girl is still missing, AL.com reports. Police say Kamille disappeared from an outdoor birthday party at around 8:30pm. They later released surveillance photos of a possible suspect and a vehicle that may have been involved in the abduction. A man and his girlfriend were arrested after neighbors who recognized them in the photos called police.

An Amber Alert for Kamille was sent out Saturday saying the girl is believed to be in "extreme danger," ABC reports. Her father says he spent the night searching abandoned buildings in the area. "I won’t stop," he says. "If anybody sees Cupcake, please bring me my Cupcake back home. She’s got a lot of people who care about her." Police said Sunday that they were looking for a 2001-2006 blue-green Toyota Sequoia. They said the occupants, a black man and a white woman, were believed to be trying to entice children with candy, WVTM13 reports. Deputy Police Chief Scott Praytor says the department is "pulling out all the stops" to try to find the girl. (Read more Alabama stories.)
