Amber Alert Cancelled, Child Found Safe
Authorities in Carbon County said an Amber Alert was cancelled just before 11 p.m. on Saturday, after an alleged child abductor was tracked down and arrested.
Investigators told Newswatch 16 that 4-year-old Kyleigh Simcsuk is doing okay, after she was found in a motel with her father around 10:45 p.m.
An Amber Alert was issued, when police were told that the girl was abducted from Delaware Avenue in Palmerton nearly four hours earlier.
Authorities said the abduction occurred after Timothy Simcsuk assaulted the child’s grandmother, who currently has custody of the girl.
Palmerton Police said Timothy Simcsuk is locked up on parole violations in the Quakertown area, and he will likely face new charges when he returns to Carbon County.
