B.C. girl subject of Amber Alert in Washington state found by police

BELLINGHAM, United States — A Vancouver mother and her nine-year-old daughter who was the subject of an Amber Alert in Washington state have been found.

Bellingham police have tweeted that officers are with the pair at a local church after confirming the mother's car was found outside a Coachman Inn earlier Monday afternoon.

New Westminster police say Makayla Estrada-Weber had a custody visit with her mother Wilma Estrada on Jan. 22.

Police say they believe the 48-year-old mother then took her daughter, violating a court order, and crossed the border into the United States.
