A New York Amber Alert has been issued for 12-year-old Malaya Johnson after she was allegedly abducted from Hudson Falls in Washington County, local officials say. Anyone with information is urged to call 911 immediately.
The incident happened at about 3 p.m. ET on Wednesday when Malaya was allegedly taken near Oak Street in Hudson Falls, according to the amber alert. Specific details about the circumstances of the abduction were not immediately released.
The identity of the suspects are unknown, but they are described as two Hispanic males. They are believed to have taken the child in a red 2-door sedan Ford Mustang with an unknown license plate.
