    Awesome!! Relieved she was found safe.
    Hopefully that child molester/kidnapper (Edwardo) gets caught soon. Otherwise he better stay down there if he knows what's good for him.

    How the hell did they get across the US/Mexico border with active amber alert?!? Knowing they were headed that direction, waste of tax dollars if border patrol agents don’t do their job
