(CBS/AP) LAS VEGAS - Police are looking for a 10-year-old girl last seen with a Las Vegas casino card dealer, who is accused of using razor blades to slash a co-worker's face at the Bellagio resort.

Capt. Chris Jones told The Associated Press on Thursday that investigators hope someone knows where Jade Morris is.

The girl was last seen by her family at about 5p.m. last Friday with 50-year-old Brenda Stokes, who also uses the name Brenda Wilson.

She was supposed to have taken the girl shopping.

Stokes was arrested about 9:30p.m. that night after allegedly attacking a female co-worker who was dealing blackjack at the Bellagio.

She is being held on felony charges related to the attack.

Police have detained a 2007 Saab sedan Stokes had been driving that evening.

Jade Morris is described as a five-foot-tall, 70-pound, African-American girl with her black hair last seen in two ponytails.
