KANSAS CITY — An Amber Alert first issued for five-month-old Olivia Smith in Oklahoma and extended into Kansas Thursday night was canceled early Friday morning. She was found safe in Seminole, Texas and is in protective custody.
The Kansas Amber Alert website says the alert ended shortly after 2 a.m. with suspects in custody according to Kingfisher County Sheriff’s Office, the county where she was taken from Oklahoma. It’s unconfirmed if one of the suspects is her great-aunt, 48-year-old Cindy Findley, who authorities believe abducted her when the alert was first issued.
Authorities previously said Findley may have been headed with Smith to Salt Lake City, Utah where Findley has family ties. The abduction happened at about 12:15 p.m. on Thursday in Cashion, Oklahoma. The alert mentioned that Findley has a mental condition and had made comments about having a vision of the child dying in two days.
Sister station KFOR reported that Findley showed up to Smith’s grandparent’s home on Thursday unannounced and took the child.
