Texas mother charged with starving stepson, who was only found after she vanished with newborn


Thanks to one quick-thinking woman, a 6-week-old baby boy who vanished with a Texas woman previously charged with starving the boy's 5-year-old brother is safe and sound, and in Child Protective Service's custody. Phew!

Police issued an Amber Alert for the newborn when his mother Tammi Bleimeyer reportedly failed to comply with a judge's order for her to turn him over to CPS Monday. After receiving the alert on her phone, the eagle-eyed woman spotted Bleimeyer with the baby at a local pediatrician's office, and called 911. Thank goodness!

Missing child found in Mexico 12 years after kidnapping


In 2002 when Sabrina Allen was only 4 years old she was abducted in Texas by her mother, Dara Llorens.

Sabrina's father Greg Allen was the custodial parent and he's been desperately looking for his daughter ever since.
