Missing School Kids: Amber Alert Issued


Los Angeles, CA – A tense situation reached its end on Tuesday evening when an Amber Alert for two young children was abruptly canceled just minutes after its issuance. Ali Kelly, 6, and Cairo Kelly, 5, who went missing from their elementary school in Watts earlier in the day, were located safe and sound.

The alert had been issued around 5:40 p.m. by the California Highway Patrol (CHP), who warned that the children may be in the company of a dangerous man. Authorities had alerted the public to be on the lookout for a black 2009 Lincoln MKZ sedan with license plate 9LFM954.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) believed the children were with Donald Kelly, a 41-year-old who was considered armed and potentially dangerous. However, no further information about him has been released at this time.

Fortunately, the tireless efforts of law enforcement officials and the community led to a swift resolution. CHP, renowned for their swift action during Amber Alerts, issued an update around 6:40 p.m., confirming that the children had been found safe.

Details of the circumstances surrounding their disappearance and recovery remain unclear and are currently being investigated by the LAPD. As of the latest reports, no charges have been filed in connection with the incident.

The community breathes a collective sigh of relief as Ali and Cairo Kelly are safely reunited with their loved ones. LA News Center will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.
