California police: Vehicle ID'd in New Mexico amber alert found abandoned

An Amber Alert was issued in five Southern California counties for the three boys - ages 9, 8 and 6 - who authorities believe are in "imminent danger", according to the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office, which serves Albuquerque.

Bernalillo County sheriff's deputies believe 28-year-old Laria Anderson is driving 9-year-old Lloyd Wyatt, 8-year-old Lakai Wyatt and 6-year-old Lexxington Wyatt.

An Amber Alert went out to New Mexicans early Sunday after the boys' father called to report that Walker-Anderson and the children had left the family's South Valley home.

Deputies on this case say this investigation is ongoing but right now no one is facing any charges.

Authorities say the alert is in effect for the following counties: San Bernardino, San Diego, Riverside, Orange, and Los Angeles. The suspected kidnapping took place about 12:30 p.m.in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Authorities received an electronic "ping" around 2:28 p.m. signaling that the vehicle had been on the 210 Freeway near Foothill Boulevard in La Verne, according to California Highway Patrol logs obtained by the Pasadena Star-News.

They left Albuquerque about 4 a.m. September 10, and are believed to be traveling in a silver Kia Spectra sedan, New Mexico license number AAYR80. The auto was found abandoned at about 5:10 p.m. on Ramona Avenue south of Foothill Boulevard in LaVerne, according to authorities there.

They believe it was her mom who convinced Walker-Anderson to turn herself in.
