Monday night, The Texas Department Public Safety issued an Amber Alert after the child was abducted and the mother was fatally stabbed in Pasadena Texas. The suspect is 38-year old Leandro Jimenez. The abducted child is his daughter Danielle.
The Texas DPS canceled the Amber Alert on Thursday afternoon although the child remains missing. The whereabouts of the child and the suspect are unknown at this time. Her information is posted at NCMEC site with the following information.
“…Danielle was last seen the evening of July 31, 2006, at her home in Channelview, Texas. She may be in the company of her father, Leandro Jimenez. A felony warrant for Homicide was issued for her father on August 1…”
At what point does law enforcement determine the Amber Alert is no longer effective?
Once the kidnapped child has been recovered, the abduction has been resolved or law enforcement decides that the alert is no longer effective, the Texas Amber Alert Network must be deactivated. To deactivate the system:
Notify Division Emergency Management (DEM) to cancel the alert. DEM will then be responsible for sending appropriate notification to the National Weather Service, the Texas Department of Transportation and other law enforcement offices.
DEM will logon to the beyondmissing.com Internet site and edit the original submission to show that the child has been found or that the abduction has been resolved, or the alert cancelled.
