ELLENSBURG, WASH. (AP) - Authorities are searching for a Washington state man apparently caught on video holding up a convenience store as his young daughter watches and telling the clerk he is unemployed and needs money to support the girl.

The Kittitas County sheriff’s office says Robert Daniel Webb robbed the store Tuesday in Ellensburg, 95 miles southeast of Seattle.

The man in the store surveillance video points a gun at the clerk and says: “Open the till and got me what you have … I’m out of work. My daughter’s got to survive.”

The sheriff’s office says Webb made off with about $200.

Webb and his 9-year-old daughter were last seen later Tuesday in Yakima, 28 miles south of Ellensburg.
