    Thanks to Dr. Know for article!

    Child missing for 7 years found in Phoenix
    A child who went missing nearly 7 years ago from Norwalk, California has been located in Phoenix.
    Now age 7, the girl was recovered after detectives served a court order to obtain her DNA. Her identity was confirmed Wednesday afternoon to be that of a girl who went missing during a non-custodial visitation when she was 1 year old.

    Published : Wednesday, 14 Jul 2010, 9:28 PM PDT


    Norwalk - A 7-year-old girl kidnapped from her foster parents in Norwalk allegedly by her three biological aunts when she was a 1-year-old was located by sheriff's detectives on Wednesday in Phoenix.

    With the help of the FBI and Phoenix police, the girl, who appeared to be well cared for and healthy, was found at a residence in the Phoenix area and identified by her birth certificate foot print, Capt. Patrick Maxwell of the Norwalk Sheriff's Station said.

    The girl was taken Sept. 21, 2003 during an approved visitation at a restaurant in the 10900 block of Firestone Boulevard. Two of the aunts, who were juveniles at the time, were later arrested

    TY. It sounds like perhaps her bio family kidnapped her and gave her to a non bio family? Wow! I am just glad this child is ok and has been found safe!

    SNIPPED>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Police learned that the child's identity had been changed, as well as her date of birth. Even though, she was in good physical condition the child had not been allowed to attend school. The adult female at the house during Wednesday's raid was found to have no family ties to the little girl.

    it will be horribly interesting to see how we go from Aunts to non relatives having the poor thing.

    This will be quite interesting to see how this unfolds.

    Amber will be in my thoughts. This will be quite the ordeal for her, too. No matter who has been raising her, she likely knows them as her only "parents". She has been found, but this isn't over.

    Missing girl found after almost 7 years

    A California girl who had been missing for almost seven years was found Wednesday by police in Phoenix, Arizona, authorities said.

    Amber Rose Nicklas had just turned a year old when she was abducted in September 2003.

    She had been in the care of foster parents in Norwalk, California, when she was snatched by three of her aunts, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County sheriff's Norwalk Station said.

    Two of the aunts were caught at the time. The third got away with the child, said sheriff's spokesman Bill Evans.

    The girl somehow ended up with a family in Phoenix that had no relation to her biological family, authorities said.

    Authorities got a tip that Amber could be at a home in Phoenix and went there with a court order Wednesday afternoon.

    When investigators tried to serve the court order, they found that a woman in the home had hidden the child in a shower under a pile of clothes and towels, said Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump.
