    That's a long delay for an amber alert.

    Yeah it is. I live in NW Arkansas & Anderson is just over the border. And I haven't received the Amber alert. Also, nothing over my local channels. My friend that lives in Anderson sent it to me.

    I'm wandering if it is a custodial thing.

    MO - Mitchell Farris, 6 months - Anderson 1/2/14

    Amber Alert issued for baby missing in family dispute

    "Authorities named his parents as suspects in the abduction. Preston Farris, 34, and Anastasia McDaniel, 30, are being sought."

    "According to a news release from the Anderson Police Department, state social workers had placed the baby in the care of his great-grandfather. Authorities did not say why the baby had been taken from his parents.

    On Jan. 2, Farris went to his grandfather's home and took his son. Police did not explain why family members delayed reporting the abduction. "

    So it was the FAMILY that didn't report the abduction, not the police who didn't act on it?
    That makes me feel slightly better... family probably thought they'd come back.
    Either way, we lost a whole lot of time here.

    Looks like at least the social workers were doing their job on this one. Per the KCTV link:

    Missouri social workers who apparently had gone to the home of the baby's great-grandfather for a checkup discovered the baby was missing and called police.

    I believe the story has been updated with that statement as I remember wondering about it last night. They've also added a picture of Mitchell (such a cutie pie), which I'm unable to upload.

    I wonder why the baby was taken and given to an elderly man?? surely there were younger members of the family who are better suited to take care of the needs of a young baby.
    nevertheless did they plan of reporting the abduction or is it happenstance social services turned up at the right time.

    Well, the good news is when mothers abduct their own children when they've lost custody, it almost always ends well. Sad story, but it's very very likely this baby is safe with parents and will be found.
