Amber Alert For Caitlyn Virts Issued
On Thursday, March 6 at 10:45 am, the Baltimore Police Department issued an Amber Alert for Caitlyn Marie Virts, 11. Shortly after the Amber Alert was issued, police confirmed that it was connected to a potential homicide at Caitlyn’s Dundalk residence.
When police responded to a 911 call to the address at 9am that same morning, they found a dead female inside the apartment. It has not yet been confirmed whether or not the female is Caitlyn’s mother.
Police also announced that they believe Caitlyn is with her father, 38-year-old Timothy Virts. According to local reports, police insisted that Caitlyn is “not supposed to be with her father” and may be in danger.
The Amber Alert is looking for a black 1999 Dodge Durango with Maryland plate No. 5AJ4458. As usual, police encourage witnesses not to approach Timothy, Caitlyn, or the vehicle but to call 911 immediately.
A History Of Custody Battles
According to local court records, Timothy and Caitlyn’s mother have a history of fighting over custody of their daughter. Disputes over custody of Caitlyn were recorded in 2004 and again in 2010.
In 2012, Timothy received a court order to stay away from someone — however that person’s name is not available to the public due to a recently passed law in the state of Maryland.
