UPDATE: MISSOURI AMBER ALERT CANCELED; Suspect taken in custody in Kingdom City, child safe in Kingdom City

UPDATE:  Wed., Feb. 18, 2009,  9:55 a.m.
The Amber Alert has been cancelled.  The system worked.  The suspect has been arrested in Kingdom City (Mid-Missouri), and the child is safe, in custody.

NGN CARRIES ALL MISSOURI AMBER ALERTS BECAUSE OF THE CLOSE PROXIMITY OF NGN'S CURRENT MARKETS TO I-70.  THIS CASE PROVES THAT A SUSPECT IN NORTHWEST MISSOURI HEADED EAST AND MAY HAVE BEEN HEADING FURTHER EAST ON I-70.  NGN'S MAJOR READERSHIP IS IN A SWATH FROM OWENSVILLE, MO. NORTH THROUGH GASCONADE AND FRANKLIN COUNTIES, TO ST. CHARLES AND ST. LOUIS COUNTY.  SINCE CHANCES ARE GOOD THAT ANY MISSOURI ABDUCTOR MAY USE I-70 AND/OR I-44 IN FLEEING, NGN WILL CONTINUE TO CARRY ALL MISSOURI AMBER ALERTS, EVEN THOSE FROM THE FARTHEST CORNERS OF THE STATE.  JEFF NOEDEL, WED. 10:02 AM
