Update: Alerte Enlevement cancelled: child found safe

The Alerte Enlevement that has been issued on April 23 for a 7 year old girl from France has been cancelled. The child was found safe and well by the French police. 

The girl was found a hundred kilometers from Sancy. She knocked on the door of a doctor, who immediately recognized the child from the AMBER Alert (France BleuLe Monde). Prosecutor Le Clair reported that the AMBER Alert could have been the reason the abductor released the child (Huffington PostLe Monde).

No proven abduction
French prosecutor Yves Le Clair told AFP that the French authorities decided to launch the alert, although there was no certainty for a proven abduction (Le Parisien).

Cross border AMBER Alert
According to Le Figaro, the French AMBER Alert was not only spread in France, but also to police in neighboring countries Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. “For us, the border does not exist”, said Le Clair (France 3 Lorraine).

Alerte Enlèvement
Alerte Enlèvement is the French missing children alert system. It allows police officers to inform French citizens quickly via TV, Radio, social media, highway signs, vocal messages, Apps, e-mail and SMS text messages.
