Child found safe after Amber Alert; mother arrested
Christine Riemer arrested near Florida-Georgia state line
Authorities say a Fort Myers woman accused of taking her daughter during a supervised visit is in jail in north Florida.
Florida State Agricultural Officers arrested 46-year-old Christine Riemer on Interstate 75 near the Florida-Georgia state line late Tuesday. They say 7-year-old Crystal was found safe.
An Amber Alert had been issued earlier Tuesday after Lutheran Services officials in Fort Myers notified police that Riemer had taken Crystal during a court-ordered supervised visit.
The News-Press of Fort Myers reports the child has special needs and is the size of a 3-year-old. The Department of Children and Families took custody of Crystal.
Riemer was arrested on charges of driving with a suspended license and for bypassing a weigh station and is in jail in Jasper.
Fort Myers police are investigating.
