New Mexico authorities cancel Amber Alert after 2 children are found OK; mother arrested


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — An Amber Alert issued for two children by New Mexico State Police and Las Vegas police was canceled after the kids were found unharmed.

State Police say 25-year-old Davina Wilkins was arrested on suspicion of custodial interference late Tuesday. She's accused of taking her two boys without authorization and in violation of a court order.

They say Wilkins was participating in a supervised visit with her children Tuesday afternoon when she fled the Children, Youth and Families Department facility with them.
