HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — The silver alert issued for a two-year-old girl missing from Hamden has been cancelled after she was found in New York.
Police say Hailie Sierra’s mother, 22-year-old Jasmine Hernandez, took the girl from her home at 33 Webb Street. They say Sierra has a restraining order against her mother.
Friday night, officials said they thought the two could be heading to the Bronx. They say that’s where Sierra’s father found them.
According to police, Hernandez left the scene before the NYPD arrived. They say a warrant for her arrest is pending.
According to Connecticut Police Officer Standards and Training Policy for Handling Missing Persons Investigations, “Silver Alert is an alert system for persons who are under the age of 18 but do not meet the criteria of Amber, adult persons with a mental impairment or medical condition and any person over the age 65.”
