A 4-year-old girl was found in Sacramento Thursday after she was taken by her mother, one of two inmates who went missing from a minimum-security Oakland facility, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation announced today. Katrice Davis, 30, is still at large, but her daughter was reported to be safe at a relative’s home in Sacramento Thursday, according to the Department of Corrections. Stephanie Almeida, 27, who is 5 months pregnant, was the second woman who went missing from Oakland’s Community Prisoner Mother Program facility. Almeida was taken into custody around 6 pm Wednesday, department spokeswoman Terry Thornton said. Both women were serving sentences for second-degree robbery, Thornton said. The Oakland facility had reported the two women and the girl missing around 7 p.m. Tuesday, she said. Davis is described as a black woman who is about 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 123 pounds. She has black hair, brown eyes and a small build, and has the name “Ernie” tattooed on her left hand and left calf, according to the Department of Corrections. Anyone with knowledge of her whereabouts is asked to call (916) 417-5539. The Community Prisoner Mother Program is for women who have no prior history of serious or violent offenses. The facility in Oakland houses 24 inmates and is one of three such programs in California, Thornton said. A total of 71 female inmates are in the program statewide. The program allows children under the age of 6 to live with their mothers while the mothers are incarcerated. Pregnant women can give birth at the facility and keep their babies.
