Midwest City Police Now Say Amber Alert Was Result Of Hoax

Updated:
MIDWEST CITY (AP) -- Midwest City police say an Amber Alert issued Thursday was likely the result of a hoax of a foster mother who said three children were taken at gunpoint.

Police initially arrested the foster mother -- Carmen Hipshire [pictured] -- on a complaint of interfering with a police investigation. Police now say they'll ask that she be charged with falsely reporting a crime causing an Amber Alert to be issued.

Hipshire had told police the biological parents of the three children had taken them at gunpoint.

Police say the parents are Rhonda Anderson and Marcel Bonds and they are now considered victims in the case.
