11:10 a.m. Authorities in Kingfisher County are looking into whether any Oklahoma laws were broken when two aunts of a 5-month-old girl took her to Texas Thursday.
An Amber Alert was issued for the girl, Amber Faith Smith, Thursday and law officers from Kingfisher County Sheriff’s office, Oklahoma City police, Edmond police and the FBI worked for more than 14 hours trying to locate the missing girl.
The girl is reportedly safe in Seminole, Texas, said Kingfisher County Undersheriff Bryon Blankenship Friday morning.
Blankenship said the case appears to be a civil dispute. The baby’s grandmother was keeping the girl before her two aunts went to the home near Cashion and took the child to Texas. A report on the incident could be submitted to the Kingfisher County District Attorney’s office where a decision could be made to file any charges if state laws were broken, Blankenship said.
5 a.m. A 5-month-old girl reported missing from Cashion has been found, the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety reports Friday.
About 2 a.m. authorities reported the girl had been located safe in Seminole, Texas. The city north of Midland, Texas is located east of Hobbs, New Mexico in Gaines County, Texas, the Associated Press reports. An Amber Alert issued Thursday for her by Oklahoma authorities has been canceled.
The alert was issued Thursday by the Kingfisher County Sheriff’s office for Olivia Faith Smith who was seen about 12:15 p.m. Thursday at 30773 N 2976 Road near Cashion.
Before the girl was found early Friday, authorities also reported that the Hyundai Sante Fe thought to have been used in an abduction was located in The Woodlands, Texas and was not used to abduct the girl. No arrrests have been reported. Check NewsOK.com for updates.
