NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — The search for a missing 11-year-old girl out of Pasco County ended Tuesday morning when deputies said she was found safe in Tampa.
A Florida Amber Alert was issued Monday for Montana "Jordan" Breseman. Investigators say Breseman last was seen leaving the 7-Eleven near River Ridge Middle School on Town Center Road in New Port Richey, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office news release.
An Amber Alert is different from a Missing Child Alert. This is the criteria for an Amber Alert to be issued in Florida:
- The child must be younger than 18-years-old
- There must be a clear indication of an abduction
- Investigators believe the child's life is in danger
- The alert must have a detailed description of the child and abductor
- Local law enforcement has to recommend it
If you get an Amber Alert on your phone or TV screen, that means the missing child could be in your area. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement decides how far the Amber Alert should be broadcast.
