Infant, mother found in safety by police in AMBER Alert
Salt Lake City police officers located the 7-week-old infant at the center of an AMBER Alert and his 28-year-old mother.
Both were found safely at The Gateway mall after police were told she was in the area. She was taken into custody. The warning was issued around 5 p.m. on Friday after police had previously been called and investigated the report. Only later were all legal requirements for a warning met.
They said the woman identified as Madison Felt was seen with a second suspect driving a newer white Volkswagen Tiguan. The vehicle was seen on a 7-Eleven at 109 South 300 East in Salt Lake.
This person was asked by Felt to provide a ride to a bus stop and after dropping them off, saw the warning and called the police and told them he was dropping Felt off at the 300 South 600 West Greyhound bus station would have.
The vehicle and the male driver were later located, although the police did not say where or if the driver was taken into custody. It’s not clear why, but the child was in government custody and was in violation of guidelines during visiting hours and was at large with the child, which resulted in an investigation and then an alert.
Shortly before 6 p.m., patrolmen found Felt.
The investigation continued.
The police have asked anyone with information about the incident to call 801-799-3000.
