ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A woman who reported her baby missing is accused of orchestrating the disappearance, which triggered Alaska’s first fully initiated Amber Alert.
Elisa LaCroix, 20, is charged with making a false abduction report. In January, she was charged with falsely accusing an ex-boyfriend of raping her close to her due date.
LaCroix was out on bail on the earlier case when she was arrested Sunday after 3-week-old Ethan LaCroix was found unharmed at Fort Richardson in the custody of Amelia Cameron.
