A girl who was abducted in Oklahoma has been located by the police. She had been taken to Texas. The girl was not harmed in the incident.
Details are still coming out, but it is known that the girl, who is 3 years old, was picked up by a non-custodial parent just after five o’clock. This incident occurred at a Walmart in the town of McAlester.
This prompted police to release a report about the abduction, saying that the woman had taken the girl in a sedan that had Florida plates on it. An alert was sent out, but it was not an Amber Alert. Instead, police called it a “missing endangered juvenile” alert.
After doing so, the girl was discovered in Texas, at the home of her grandmother. That is when police learned that she had not been injured. However, they did not give out any information about how they found out that she was there or how she came to be there in the first place.
They are looking at the situation as a civil child custody case.
Child custody laws stipulate how much time a parent can spend with a child, if any, and some parents do tend to struggle with these rights, especially if they are not given partial custody to live with their children and feel that they should have been. However, when one of those parents violates the custody ruling, the custodial parent has a legal right to pursue charges. At the time of a divorce, it is critical that each parent understands how the agreement works.
