TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - There's a ten month old little girl somewhere out there tonight whose family wants her home.

Estella Lovemore, her family calls her Ella, was in the care of foster parents when her biological mother took off with her. Friday, Ella's biological father, Richter Lewis, talked to 9OYS, determined to get her home.

Richter Lewis' head is reeling over what happened January 27.  His little girl Ella disappeared. Ella, in the care of foster parents, was having a supervised visit with her biological mother, Danielle Lovemore at the Gymnastics World in Marana when both of them disappeared.
Despite a couple of reported sightings, Ella is still missing. 
"I've gone through a lot of emotion," Lewis said. [I'm] determined to get my daughter back and I'm not gonna quit until I do." 
Ella is 10-months-old with red hair and blue eyes and even though she looks adorable in her seahawks dress, she was last seen wearing a pink jacket. 
Her dad is having an event Saturday at the Reid Park Bandstand from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. to pass out flyers, hoping someone will recognize Ella. Lewis admits he's concerned about Ella's well-being, but he is trying to stay focused and positive.  
"I know I'm gonna get my daughter back," says Lewis. "I'm not gonna quit until I do."
