More than 50 Tulsa Police officers responded to the reported kidnapping. They were tied up all afternoon. But police say the good news is the system worked.
The Amber Alert hit the airwaves less than half an hour after the baby was reported missing. A woman heard the alert and spotted the blue minivan police were looking for. Officers converged on the neighborhood, with some going door to door looking for a suspect in dark clothing.
This turned out to be more of a drill than the real thing, but one sergeant says there's still something to be proud of. Tulsa Police Sgt Rick Bondy: "I'd like the citizens of Tulsa to know they have a top-notch police department and we're gonna leave no stone unturned if their child comes up missing this is the kind of response they'll get."
One thing that didn't happen, the highway signs didn't flash an Amber Alert. Officer Scott Walton says they weren't needed because the alert was called off once the minivan was found.
