State patrol locates child; Amber Alert cancelled

(KARE) Roughly three hours after posting an Amber Alert, the Minnesota State Patrol has located the abducted 15-month-old girl.

Just before 7 p.m., troopers located the suspect's vehicle on Interstate 35W near Stinson Blvd. The Anoka County Sheriff's Office reports the girl was in the vehicle and was not harmed.

The Anoka County Sheriff's Office said the child's mother, identified as Yusra Abumayaleh, 30, took the child from a day care in Ramsey on Wednesday, where workers did not know she no longer had custody.

Authorities said they had reason to believe both the child and the mother were in danger. They said the mother had recently been acting in an "irrational matter," threatening to commit suicide or cause harm to other people.
