    Police Press conference and short interview with aunt at the link

    A relative of the boy said the mother is mentally ill, taking drugs and represents a danger to the child.

    She said Nisha Burnett had a restraining order against her for the next two years to stay away from the boy because of "possible endangerment of the child."

    "She's mentally ill," Lia Hein said. "She listens to the voices in her head and acts accordingly. Which is very unpredictable. And she's also doing drugs."

    The woman was last seen in the Palms area around 12:30 p.m., police said.

    The FB makes me sad. She seemed to be very close to her sons and they looked very happy---back in 2016. But then you can see her kind of having mental issues....I HOPE she drops him off somewhere safe...

    I was thinking the same thing. They all looks so happy just less than a year ago. Her more recent postings are strange, and very little response from others. Something seriously has changed. I hope they find West safe.......and soon!

    Sorry guys. I spelled this little guys name wrong in the title. I've alerted the mods to change it. It's West Burnett.

    This one scares me. It does sound like mom is suffering from serious mental health issues. I'm really worried about West. I can't believe we are following two two amber alerts for two different 5 year old boys from LA county at the same time!

    Oops. West is 6......but still

    This one was extra worrisome (imo, too) Thrilled it was resolved as (relatively) quickly as it was.

    I heard one of the reporters mentioning a delay in the "amber alert"... wonder if this is true?

    VENICE AMBER ALERT SUSPECT IN CUSTODY; SON RECOVERED SAFELY

    ENICE, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A woman wanted for allegedly abducting her son from a Venice school, triggering an Amber Alert, was taken into custody and the boy was recovered safely Wednesday night.

    Nisha Burnett was spotted with her son West Burnett in her vehicle on Venice Boulevard. Police approached the car and she appeared to at first be speaking with them, but eventually drove away from the scene, leading officers on a short chase.

    She then pulled over, and took her son on foot into a Harley Davidson store in the Venice area. Officers followed her inside and quickly took her into custody.
