The AMBER Alert issued earlier today by the Texas Department of Public Safety has been cancelled after 8-year old Kiley Diaz and her mother, 29-year old Alyssa Lopez, were located this afternoon in Garden Ridge by members of the US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and the FBI Safe Streets Task Force. After speaking with authorities by telephone, the mother surrendered herself and her unharmed daughter peacefully and without further incident.
Lopez was taken into custody on an unrelated warrant of arrest and will be booked at the Comal County Jail. Charges against her in this case are pending. The child is currently in the custody of the Texas Department of Family Services.
The New Braunfels Police Department greatly appreciates the efforts of the federal law enforcement agencies that assisted in this case, as well as the countless pieces of information provided by members of the public.
