NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — An Amber Alert previously issued for three young children reported missing in Brooklyn has been canceled.
Police said late Friday that 1-year-old Hydi Johnson, 5-year-old Sincere Johnson and 7-year-old Devine Johnson have been found and are safe. Further details were not immediately available.
The New York State Police activated the alert earlier in the day after they said the children were taken under circumstances that lead police to believe they are in imminent danger of serious harm and/or death.
The children were allegedly taken by their mother, identified as 26-year-old Crystal Johnson, around 12:10 p.m. and were last seen near their residence on Van Siclen Avenue.
State police had labeled it a child abduction.
Johnson is described as a Black woman with black hair in short twists and brown eyes. She is about 5-feet-2-inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. She was last seen wearing a navy blue sweater, leggings with flower print and black boots. She has bruising under both eyes.
She was seen on surveillance cameras near Pitkin Avenue and Van Siclen Avenue walking with the children and pushing a baby stroller.
Earlier Friday, a separate Amber Alert was canceled after a 7-year-old girl, who authorities said was allegedly abducted by her father in Pennsylvania, was found safe in New York City.
