Amber Alert Deactivated: 2 Missing Exposition Park Children Found Safe; Mother Arrested
An Amber Alert was deactivated Sunday after two children who were taken from their grandmother’s Exposition Park home were found safe and their mother was arrested on suspicion of child abduction, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The children were found in the 3000 block of East Imperial Highway (map) in Brea Saturday night.
The 8-year-old boy and 9-year-old were taken Monday morning and reported missing Tuesday.
Their mother, Ameenah Rasheedah Freemar, was suspected of trying to take the children to Pheonix, where their biological father lived, according to CHP.
Freemar went to her mother’s home Thursday, appearing “disoriented and still unmedicated.” Freemar left the home when her mother called 911, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
She appeared at the home again Thursday and was “in a confused state and asked where the children were,” the LAPD reported.
Freemar was arrested Saturday and was being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center on $80,000 bail.
