Mother of missing girl arrested for poor living conditions
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Describing conditions at her home “not conducive for human habitation”, police arrested the mother of the six-year-old girl for whom an Amber Alert was issued on Wednesday evening.
Amia Walker, 6, was found safe with a neighbor less than an hour after the Amber Alert was issued. Police say she went to the neighbor’s home because no one was at her house when she returned from school.
During their investigation, officers went inside Bianca Roebuck’s home and found the home in poor condition, they say.
Amia Walker had been placed in protective custody while police investigated. Wyandotte County prosecutors did not expect to file criminal charges against Bianca, although civil procedures were being considered for ‘child in need of care.” Bianca was questioned and released.
