Dutch baby was found

thanks to cross-border AMBER Alert

On Monday, February 26th, the Dutch police issued a national AMBER Alert for a 6-month-old girl from Eersel, the Netherlands. The chuild, who was placed in foster care, was violently taken by her biological parents. Because police feared they had crossed the border, the alert was also shared with police and citizens in Belgium and Germany. A vigilant citizen saw the AMBER Alert, which led to the quick recovery of the girl in a German town near the Netherlands. The Dutch baby was found in good health.
