Amber Alert deactivated, child's mother is in custody: VPD

Vancouver Police say the Amber Alert for a four-year-old missing child is over.

"At the very least drop her off at a safe location, whether that's a police station, a fire hall or even a coffee shop", Montague said at an early-morning news conference.

Police have no specific information to suggest Hanley wants to harm her daughter, he added. We're in contact with as many people as we can who know Angela so we're hoping to get some leads that way.

The alert was issued after the girl's 46-year-old mother took the child from her legal guardian's home on King Edward Avenue in East Vancouver.

Montague said that her mother does not have custody.

Police said they had a 46-year-old woman in custody and their investigation was continuing.

Investigators said the pair are likely travelling by transit or other types of public transportation but they do not believe that they have left the lower mainland.

He made a direct appeal to anyone who knows Hanley's whereabouts to call police, and also urged Hanley to "do the right thing". She was wearing a colourful rain jacket with flowers, a black shirt with writing on the front and black leggings with grey stripes. She was wearing a brown corduroy jacket with a fur-lined hood, and rainboots that come up to the calf.
