Authorities are on the lookout for a missing mother and her daughter.

Cici Ray, 22, and daughter Laya Firiro, 3, were reported missing by her boyfriend Phillip Bunch, who called the Independence County Sheriff’s Department when he returned home to find the two gone.

According to Deputy Zach Spohr’s report, Bunch left the house late Sunday night after Ray “came home drunk and started an argument.”

Spohr wrote in his report that Bunch “went to the Dollar General in Cushman and sat there for approximately 15 minutes.”

Bunch added that his wallet that contained his driver’s license and social security card was also missing, but Bunch did not want to pursue charges against his girlfriend yet, but “wanted to make sure she was safe.”

Spohr said in his report that Bunch was unable to provide clothing descriptions of either the mother or the child and could not provide the child’s date of birth.
