CASHION, Oklahoma - The Amber Alert for a missing Kingfisher County child has been canceled. 

Deputy Jonathan Riedlinger of the Kingfisher County Sheriff's Office tells News 9 5-month-old Olivia Smith was found in Seminole, Texas.  That's in far west Texas between Lubbock and Midland. 

"The suspects have been apprehended and child is safe and in protective custody", according to an e-mail alert from Oklahoma Amber Alert Coordinator Gene Thaxton.


Deputy Riedlinger said he did not have any additional information on how the child was found.

An Amber Alert was issued after Kingfisher County authorities say Smith was abducted about 12:15 p.m. Thursday afternoon from a home located at 30773 N. 2976 Road in Cashion. The child was taken from Kingfisher County.

Rain falls outside the home where five-month-old Olivia Smith was taken, but that's about the only movement that's going on there. 

Thursday afternoon, Kingfisher County investigators were at the home talking with the family who lives there, but since then, nobody has come or gone from the place. However, a massive search is underway in several states.

“Two white females walked into the house, grabbed the five-month baby and ran back out of the house into a vehicle,” Kingfisher County Deputy Jonathan Reidlinger said.

The vehicle is a black, 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe with Texas license plate number BYZ-3365. The two women, detectives believe took the baby, are 47-year-old Cindy Findley and 43-year-old Jennifer Skousen.

Authorities said the vehicle was last seen near Elmwood in Beaver County located in northwest Oklahoma. They believed she was headed to Salt Lake City, Utah. However, Thursday evening the vehicle was found parked at Findley’s home in Houston, Texas. 

Officials said Findley has a mental condition and made comments of having a vision of the child dying in two days. 

According to family members, both of the child’s parents are in jail in Texas. They said Findley is the great-aunt of Smith, and the mom told her to take the child from the grandparents. They also said Findley does not suffer from a psychiatric condition.

Authorities tried contacting Findley, but her cell phone was turned off. News 9 made calls to the baby’s grandparents, but the voice mailbox was full.
