I won't hold my breath waiting for this non white, non female, non blonde, non teenage child to be highlighted on Greta.
I hope and pray that the child is found unharmed.
Heading home in about 45 minutes. North on 28 but I'll keep my eyes open anyway.
Any news on this yet?
Just checked, still active.
Missing child picture:
Sounds like it, but that's not a safe place either. God bless the child.
Could be, but even so it meets the criteria of imminent threat of death or serious injury. Otherwise it would not have been activated by PSP.
I saw this at lunch before they actually listed the alert. It sounds like the dad was abusive. There is a protection from abuse order, but they didn't know if it was for the mom or child. The security at the museum where this boy went to head start was aware there was a possible threat and had taken precautions. (how it was reported at lunch) But apparently the dad attacked the grandma as soon as she had parked and gotten the boy out of the car and was gone.
Prayers they find this boy unharmed.
See my post 14
From PSP at 1942 hrs:
HE AMBER ALERT ISSUED ON THIS DATE FOR AYINDE BRADFORD ON BEHALF OF PITTSBURGH PD HAS BEEN CANCELLED. THE CHILD HAS BEEN SAFELY RESCUED.
Thanks be to God!
BTW, sorry for the gigantic photos. I simply copied the url for the images from the Amber Alert PSP site....had no idea they would be such modem-choakers.
Prayers being said ....~~Pandora~~
I saw that on the 11 o'clock news last night and actually had tears well up in my eyes. Finally a happy ending!
