    AMBER Alert issued for mother, 2 kids

    An AMBER Alert has been issued for two young brothers who disappeared with their mother, who police say may be suicidal.

    Police say 27-year-old Nicole Butcher left a note with the boys’ father that she was leaving with the children and heading to Nevada. She allegedly cleaned out the house and took off at about 8:30 Tuesday morning.

    Her status says 3 more days til vacation and some comments are referencing her going to Vegas. I wonder why LE and the Dad think she is suicidal?

    Interesting how her quote is "3 MORE DAYS TIL OUR VACATION!!!!"

    Also:

    "SIN CITY IS MY SECOND HOME AND I MISS IT!"

    Good thing they already had the Nevada info.

    Beat me to it, daisy! Great minds...

    I'm not sure about the suicidal thing. Maybe it was in the note? But...I saw something on another article the other day saying something about "If my kids were missing, I'd lie, stretch the truth, anything to get them to issue an AMBER Alert." Possibly what happened here???? From the photos, the kids seem happy. So unless there was something in the note....I dunno.

    yeah, I'm not feelin' this one. Something is defiantly off here but I don't think it's Nicole. Nothing in her myspace page would suggest anything abnormal. She was excited about going home to Vegas for vacation, I think from captions on pictures her mother recently passed (Meme).
    Maybe the Dad to these boys is being vengeful or maybe there was a misunderstanding between the two but I really don't think she took these boys to hurt them or herself. I could be wrong though...ya just never know.

    From your first link:

    The mother allegedly called a neighbor between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. stating she was in Baker City, Oregon.

    AMBER Alert Cancelled for Two Washington State Boys



    An AMBER Alert was issued for two young boys taken by their mother. The boys were taken from a residence in Kittitas, Washington by their mother who left a note threatening suicide.

    Police believed the mother was heading to either Winnemucca or Las Vegas. Shortly after the AMBER Alert activation, the boys were recovered unharmed.

    Most news articles I have read indicated that Washington State Police activated an AMBER ALERT concerning Nicole Butcher abduction of her two sons, Preston and Parker from their home in Kittitas, Washington. However, they failed to mention that she has legal custody of these two children. The articles also indicated that Nicole left a suicide note to her husband, which is also incorrect. The father never married Nicole therefore no paternity on his part has been granted through the courts. The so-called suicide note was a note indicating that she “would never keep the children from seeing their father” and that she “was leaving with the children to a safe environment”.
    The relationship between Nicole and the father have been under stress for the last year. They were in the process of splitting up the material belongings as the father indicated that he was relocating to a different residency. Some news stories indicated that Nicole cleaned out the house, which is also a fabrication of the news media. Allow me to clarify what household items that she had in her possession when she arrived here in Nevada. The total amount of household items were zip, zero, none. The total belongings in her possession were Nicole’s and the children clothes, which consisted of six trash bags.
    Why did Nicole leave when she has family in the Ellensburg/Kittitas area? Nicole and her children have been here in Nevada for three days now and still have not heard from her mother how she or her grandchildren are doing or if they had arrived safely. I ask you “What type of support did she have there from this side of the family?”
    Every successful AMBER ALERT contains clearly defined activation criteria, which require law enforcement to confirm abduction prior to issuing an alert. Clearly, stranger abductions are the most dangerous for children and thus are primary to the mission of an AMBER ALERT to allow significant information that an abduction has occurred. However, in the event of Preston and Parker's Amber alert lead to the abuse of the system which has the potential of weakening future Amber alerts and effectiveness.
    The purpose of the AMBER Alert is to provide a rapid response to the most serious child abduction cases. When an alert is activated law-enforcement agencies immediately gain the assistance of thousands of broadcast and cable listeners and viewers throughout the area. The plan relies on galvanizing the community to help safely recover the abducted child. The resources in Amber alert costs the taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in law enforcement agencies. The Amber alert was never intended to be used for locating children who have runaway from home, missing children taken by a non-custodial relative in a child custody case, lost children, or incidents when a law enforcement search is underway for a criminal suspect, i.e., murder, bank robber, rapist, and in which a child is involved.
    Without going in to further detail I thank all of you for your concerns on the safety of my grandchildren and my daughter. They are safe and well here in Winnemucca Nevada.
