MILWAUKEE -- Missing two-year-old girl Noelani Robinson has been found dead, a family member tells TODAY'S TMJ4.

Noelani had been missing since Monday, when police say Dariaz Higgins shot and killed Noelani's mother, Sierra, before going on the run with Noelani. An AMBER Alert was issued that night. Higgins was taken into custody on Wednesday, but refused to tell police where Noelani was located, Chief Alfonso Morales said at a news conference Friday.

The Steele County, Minnesota Sheriff's Office reported early Saturday morning that a body had been found in the ditch there. Police previously confirmed to TODAY'S TMJ4 they were investigating a tip Noelani may be in Minnesota.

The Milwaukee Police Department will hold a 2:00 p.m. news conference to update the public on the case. You can watch live here.
