UPDATE: Authorities end search for suspect, one-year-old girl from Arkansas
WHITE COUNTY, Ark. — The Amber Alert issued for a one-year-old from Kensett, Arkansas has been cancelled.
Authorities didn’t release any additional details in their report.
According to the local police department, the Amber Alert was activated after Kara Griffin and her mother Sara were last seen around 12:30 p.m. Monday near Cherry Street. It’s believed they were with the woman’s ex-boyfriend Gary Phillips, who has made threats in the past to harm both mother and child after Sara ended their relationship.
Phillips had been abusive towards the two victims and authorities believed they were being held against their will.
