The Maine State Police, in collaboration with the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office, issued an Amber Alert late Sunday evening, urging the public’s assistance in locating 11-year-old Jade Morrison. However, the authorities are now relieved to know that the young girl has been taken by her mother because of that reason amber has been canceled just half n hour after it was initially broadcasted.
Jaiden “Jade” Morrison, who identifies as a young female, was reported missing at around 5 p.m. on Sunday when she was last seen with her mother, Danielle Dyer, on 14 Front St in Topsham. Jade was abducted by her mother, who does not have legal custody of her, and fled the scene in an unknown vehicle, according to the authorities.
In their effort to track down the young girl, police received a critical clue when a phone ping revealed Danielle’s location in the Lewiston area around 10 p.m. Jade was last seen wearing a dark blue puffy jacket and gray leggings. More details about her physical appearance or information about her mother, Danielle Dyer, have not been shared.
The Amber Alert was put into effect around 10:45 p.m. Sunday, and within half an hour, state police were able to cancel it, stating that Jade Morrison had been found, and her safety guaranteed. The successful outcome of the ordeal is a testament to the effectiveness of the Amber Alert system, which activates GPS tracking and broadcasts the description of the missing child across social media platforms, news stations, and other outlets to maximize the public’s role in locating the lost child.
The Maine State Police and the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend their gratitude to the public for their help and support during this time.
