Texas 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.

MERCEDES - A California carnival worker - with a history as a sexual predator - has been arrested in connection with the kidnapping of a four-year old Hidalgo County girl.

Little Lesley Perez was snatched Tuesday night while she was playing near her home.

She was found Wednesday night at a farm about twenty miles from where she lives.

Police say she had no visible injuries but was taken to a hospital for an examination and then reunited with her family.

The suspect, 23-year-old Christian Elijalee McMillan, had reportedly been seen scouting the girl's neighborhood three days before the kidnapping.

Charges against him are still pending.
