Great news this evening after an Amber Alert in the afternoon brought about great distress among authorities and our viewers.
We reported at the outset of our six o'clock news that an Amber Alert had been issued after a child was listed as missing at about 12:30 near Chenango Street. The child, Lucios Mitchell approximately 3-months-old, was said to be with a 26-year-old suspect named Veronica Mitchell.
Just after 6pm, we could report that police had confirmed that the suspect was in custody and the child was safe.
Binghamton residents showed relief over this news on social media and in person.
