Facing questions about Saturday’s AMBER Alert, Smith said the multi-hour delay between Kamille’s abduction to when an AMBER Alert was sent was due to a delay between the abduction and when the kidnapping was reported to law enforcement. He also said they have not found a connection between the parents and the persons of interest.
