“The child was taken under circumstances that lead police to believe that they are in imminent danger of serious harm and/or death,” the Amber Alert reads. “Anyone with any information on this abduction is asked to call the New York State Police at (518) 457-6811 or dial 911 to provide information on a report or sighting.”
“We just want her returned safely like any parent would. No tip is too small, please call if you know anything at all,” the Sena family told NBC News.
“As a mother and as a grandmother, I cannot imagine the pain they’re going through,” Gov. Kathy Hochul told the reporters. “They shared with me how joyful their little girl is, a fourth grader just recently elected to be a class officer for student council.”
