BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Two arrests have been made, but Birmingham police are still asking the community for help locating a missing 3-year-old Kamille McKinney.

On Tuesday afternoon, Chief Patrick Smith of the Birmingham Police Department announced that two “persons of interest” in the abduction case have been arrested on unrelated charges to the investigation.

WIAT reports that Patrick Devone Stallworth, 39, of Birmingham, is charged with four counts of possession of child pornography and three counts of possession of child pornography with the intent to distribute. He is being held on a total bond of $500,000.

Derrick Irisha Brown, 29, was originally charged with kidnapping, but ultimately had her probation revoked. She is being held without bond.

“During the investigation, detectives interviewed both subjects in relation to the disappearance of Kamille McKinney,” Smith said. “Although investigators were unable to gather pertinent information on the location of Kamille McKinney, evidence was obtained to allow detectives to obtain warrants on both subjects.”

Kamille, also known as “Cupcake,” was reportedly kidnapped from a birthday party at the Tom Brown Village housing community in Birmingham Saturday, October 12. Authorities issued an AMBER Alert early Sunday morning. The alert has since been expanded to bordering states.

“The Birmingham Police Department is reaching out to the public right now because we need your help. This is a very critical time. This is not just one community problem. This is a city of Birmingham problem, a state problem,” Smith said.

Smith said because there were multiple events happening at the same time at the housing community the night Kamille went missing, he believes someone might have cell phone video that could be helpful in the investigation.

On Monday, Governor Kay Ivey’s office offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible and for the location of Kamille. Jefferson County District Attorney Danny Carr said a private citizen has also offered a $1,000 reward for information.
