ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Two New Mexico sisters who were the issue of an Amber Alert have been found south of the border.
The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office said early Sunday morning that 9-year-old Genesis Marquez and 10-year-old Trinity Marquez were found safe in Mexico.
Authorities issued the alert on Saturday night after the girls’ mother reported them missing after their father took them.
The mother told police that 40-year-old Oscar Marquez took their daughters from a grandmother’s house Thursday night after the grandmother went to sleep.
The Sheriff’s Office says no other information is available at this time.
