GREELEY, Colo. – Police said “obvious miscommunication” led to an Amber Alert out of Greeley on Monday and a woman arrested in connection to the case will not face any charges.
The Amber Alert was issued shortly after 3:30 p.m. Monday but was canceled about 25 minutes later, when Greeley police said the child had been found safe.
A Greeley police spokesperson told Denver7 that they arrested a woman who took her roommate’s 6-year-old daughter with her to a pawn shop around 10 a.m. Monday against the mother’s will.
The woman was taken into custody around 4 p.m. for investigation on kidnapping charges, police said. The spokesperson said the young girl was not injured.
On Tuesday morning, police said they’d talked to all the parties in the case and determined that there was “obvious miscommunication” and no foul play in the case. After consulting with the district attorney’s office, police decided not to pursue any charges against the roommate.
The case is now closed, police said.
