Mom arrested, child found safe after Amber Alert
FORT MYERS, Fla. – UPDATE: Authorities say a Fort Myers woman accused of taking her daughter during a supervised visit is in jail in north Florida.
Florida State Agricultural Officers arrested 46-year-old Christine Riemer on Interstate 75 near the Florida-Georgia state line late Tuesday. They say 7-year-old Crystal was found safe.
An Amber Alert had been issued earlier Tuesday after Lutheran Services officials in Fort Myers notified police that Riemer (pictured, right) had taken Crystal during a court-ordered supervised visit.
The News-Press of Fort Myers reports the child has special needs and is the size of a 3-year-old. The Department of Children and Families took custody of Crystal.
Riemer was arrested on charges of driving with a suspended license and for bypassing a weigh station and is in jail in Jasper.
Fort Myers police are investigating.
