MILWAUKEE — An Amber Alert was issued on Sunday night, November 15th for a critically missing three-year-old girl — who went missing when the SUV she was in was stolen on the city’s north side. Police said shortly after 11:00 p.m., the Amber Alert had been CANCELLED, and the girl was FOUND SAFE. A 32-year-old suspect is in custody.
Three-year-old Aubri Degeffered was found in Lake Mills, Wisconsin by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office — acting on information from citizens.
Police say the suspect vehicle, that red Volvo SUV, was located and recovered in Jefferson County.
We’re told the three-year-old girl’s family was en route to Jefferson County late Sunday to be reunited with the girl.
Police said earlier Sunday the SUV involved in this Amber Alert situation was later involved in an attempted strong armed robbery in Brookfield.
Milwaukee police said three-year-old Aubri Degeffered was inside that SUV when it was stolen near 49th and Chambers around 6:50 p.m. on Sunday.
Police released photos of the red Volvo SUV Degeffered was in when it was stolen, and the suspect in this case:
Police say the suspect approached the red Volvo SUV and forced the driver out — fleeing in the car with the child inside.
The vehicle that was stolen was described as a red, four-door, 2013 Volvo XC60 SUV.
Brookfield police said later they’re investigating an attempted strong armed robbery that occurred on W. Bluemound Road on Sunday evening — and police said the suspect in that crime is believed to be the same suspect who stole the Volvo SUV near 45th & Chambers.
Brookfield police say the attempted strong armed robbery occurred near Bluemound and Janacek Road around 7:30 p.m.
That’s about 50 minutes after the SUV was stolen near 45th and Chambers.
Brookfield police say the attempted strong armed robbery suspect arrived and left in the Volvo SUV with Wisconsin plates: 409-XBP.
Again — the Amber Alert has been cancelled, and the three-year-old girl has been found safe. A suspect is in custody — and the red Volvo SUV was located in Jefferson County.
This investigation is ongoing — and charges are expected to be presented to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office.
