Updated, 12:08 a.m.

A 9-year-old girl and a woman abducted with her from the District on Tuesday were found safe Tuesday night after an Amber Alert was issued, D.C. police said.

They were located in New York, according to D.C. police spokeswoman Gwen Crump.

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Web site said Lamoury Bryant was abducted Tuesday along with a second girl and Karen Johnson, 39, of Southeast.

D. C. police said the three were abducted about 6 p.m. in the 5100 block of Fitch Street SE. The second girl was released, police said.

A suspect in the incident was taken into custody in New York, Crump said shortly before midnight Tuesday.

Further details were not available immediately.

Ummmmmm, does the Amber Alert not show up at toll booths? Because I'm trying to find out how in the world did they make it all the way to New York and not a single police realized that something was wrong. And if I was the lady I would've screamed when we got to one of those tool booths alerting the cashier that I'm in trouble.

I just hope the lady didn't scream or alert authorities because she was somehow involved in the kidnappings... but these days you never know.

I saw this amber alert last night, on Channel 9, about 9:30pm.

The description of the kidnapper was "5'9", 200 pounds, bald."


You'd think they could ditch the PC attitude long enough to find the kid, eh?

Guess not.
