    *** UPDATE ***

    At this time, the Amber alert has been cancelled as the main witness to the event is no longer considered a reliable witness.

    Will continue to update as info comes in.

    Always be on the lookout for children who appear they are in need of help.

    So, the entire alert may have been erroneous?

    Unfortunately yes. However, there are other witnesses who claim they saw a girl and man matching the description in other parts of the city who had not heard there was an amber alert.

    So the question is still up in the air as of late last night.

    They cancelled it even with corroboration? Does that strike anyone else as odd?

    You might want to know that the criteria for getting an Amber Alert issued is STRINGENT.

    You might also want to know that it took 1 hour for this alert to be issued - and it was the fastest one ever issued in the state of Washington. Now, the alleged kidnapping allegedly occured right at the onramp of a state highway. One hour's worth of driving is enough to get the alleged perp out of the county, certainly out of the state here in Vancouver (two counties out if they crossed the state border).

    There is not currently a missing persons report on file for any minors matching that description.
