Five-year-old girl found safe in Missouri after Florida AMBER Alert; father charged
DUNNELLON, Fla. (WGFL) —
Authorities say a 5-year-old Marion County girl has been found safe at a Missouri hotel following an AMBER Alert.
Marion County Sheriff's deputies say Alexandria Green was found at the Harbor Inn and Suites in Hermann, Missouri. They say her biological father, Alan Green, was arrested and charged with interference with child custody.
Alexandria was with Green on an unsupervised visit Saturday when deputies say she was never returned to her grandparents, who have custody.
Police considered Alexandria endangered because of Green's history of mental illness.
Deputies say Alexandria's biological mother, Mechealine Mazakis, was also at the hotel but has not been charged.
They say Alexandria will be placed into the Florida Department of Children and Families' custody, per a judge's order.
