Authorities say they think Anisa's father, Philip Jerome Jackson, took her, and he may be staying with relatives in Virginia, Maryland, Alabama or Georgia.

Anisa's mother, Asia Jackson, says the last time she saw her daughter was when she showed up to get Anisa from Philip for a custody visitation, but Philip refused to turn Anisa over. Later that weekend, Philip disappeared, apparently taking Anisa with him. The FBI has charged him with kidnapping and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

Asia has now been granted full custody of Anisa.

Melinda Murphy did a complete report on the case Friday on The Early Show.

In a post-Mardi Gras report (video) on The Early Show, Kelly Cobiella said, "Whether Mardi Gras will benefit any of the devastated areas, such as the Ninth Ward (of New Orleans), is anyone's guess. The neighborhood draws tourists, but there's no place to spend money. (Landscape artist) Jean Paul Marcelo hopes his paintings of crumpled houses (in the area) will raise money to help those in need."

Marcelo works with a group called Common Ground Collective, which says its mission is to "provide short-term relief for victims of hurricane disasters in the Gulf Coast region, and long-term support in rebuilding the communities affected in the New Orleans area. Common Ground is a community-initiated volunteer organization offering assistance, mutual aid and support. The work gives hope to communities by working with them, providing for their immediate needs and emphasizes people working together to rebuild their lives in sustainable ways."
