CA Amber Alert

The AMBER Alert System began in 1996 when Dallas-Fort Worth broadcasters teamed with local police to develop an early warning system to help find abducted children. AMBER stands for America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response and was created as a legacy to 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, who was kidnaped while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas, and then brutally murdered. Other states and communities soon set up their own AMBER plans as the idea was adopted across the nation.

A 4-year-old girl taken from her father's home Monday by two women posing as social workers turned up later that night with her deported mother in Mexico, officials said.

Authorities issued an Amber Alert for Monica Ruby Morales but canceled the search after investigators spoke with her mother on the telephone and learned the girl had already crossed the border, said Herlinda Valenzuela, a Riverside County sheriff's deputy.

Valenzuela said Monica's mother was deported about three weeks ago but would not say if the mother had any role in the child's abduction or where they were staying.
I'm glad she is safe. I hate the way they leave you wondering if she was returned to her father or not though.
