Officers were called to the home Saturday afternoon, where a woman said her boyfriend was inside with their nearly 2-year-old daughter.

After a nearly four-hour standoff, police entered the home and found no one inside.

TOPEKA (KSNT) – According to the Topeka Police department, there was a standoff in the 2600 block of Valley Brook Lane, near Shunga Trail. Police say the standoff began before 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon as a result of a domestic disturbance. A woman told police she was pushed out of her home, and that a man and the daughter they share were locked inside. A squad team entered the home around 4 p.m. but the man and daughter were not inside. Police are still searching for the man and daughter. There was no information indicating that the child was in danger. Police tell Kansas First News that the man doesn’t have a car or cell phone, but does have family in town. The grandmother of the missing girl says her name is Ambree Jo and the man’s name is Trevor Hughes. Ambree Jo turns two next week. Police have not confirmed these names.
