A 1-year-old was found after an Amber Alert was issued in a North Carolina abduction, officials said.
Ava Lee Pierce was reported missing on Monday, Dec. 6, after the child was taken during a visit with her mom last week, according to the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office.
Officials said 34-year-old Roxanne Michelle Cromer Parson, who doesn’t have parental rights, took the girl on Dec. 1. The disappearance was reported in Climax, an area roughly 70 miles west of Raleigh.
The mother and child were found just before 11 a.m. Dec. 7 during a traffic stop in Climax. Parsons was taken to the Randolph County jail, where she was served with a felony abduction warrant, officials said.
Officials had said Ava was abducted without a medicine that she has to take for a medical condition. People who saw her or her mom had been asked to call 911.
