Update 8: 11 p.m.:  

California Highway Patrol officials have deactivated an Amber Alert issued this evening for a 6-month-old girl from Huntington Beach. 

"The child was safely located," an alert from the CHP stated. 

The alert had been in effect for Riverside, San Diego, San Bernardino, Los Angeles and Orange counties. 

Original story as follows: 

An Amber Alert was issued Wednesday for a 6-month-old Huntington Beach baby girl believed to have been taken by her grandmother.

Police were told about the missing girl -- Laylani Mosley -- about 12:25 p.m., according to Huntington Beach police Lt. Mitch O'Brien.

The girl was last seen about 9 a.m. with her grandmother, 57-year-old Carolyn Ferguson, who family members said had a history of mental illness and depends on medication, O'Brien said.

The family suspects the child is with Ferguson, who was seen in Fontana about 10 a.m. in a 2007 PT Cruiser, which has front-end damage and a license plate of 5UQZ701, O'Brien said.

Ferguson is white, about 5 feet 7 inches and 175 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes. Laylani weighs about 15 pounds, has dark hair and was dressed in a pink, one-piece outfit.

The Amber Alert was issued for Riverside, San Diego, San Bernardino, Los Angeles and Orange counties. 

Anyone with more information was asked to call police at (714) 960-8825 or 911.

Really people, why would you leave your baby with someone with a history of mental illness?

I suspect some "daughter-in-law / Mother-in-law" drama here.......

The article says BELIEVED to have been with her grandmother. BELIEVED to have been seen with her grandmother. So, the editor is basing the story on what the mother and the initial police report says. NOT ON FACTS, just presumptions like most news articles are until the actual facts come out. As you can see the actual facts are not being released as yet other then she has been found and is fine. It sucks because it leaves it wide open as to where or who had the baby or maybe the mother forgot she was still asleep in her crib all day. Like the man who just recently went to work all day, even out to lunch and thought his baby was at daycare and she was actually in the back of the car, with car seat turned to the back per law, and he just did not see her. ******cough*******we have some truly jacked up parents out there these days. Nor, can we overlook the issue at hand that someone brings up of her being the Exmother-in-law and might have Grandmother visitation rights and/or is part of the pick up drop off for the father. That drama alone could be endlesss especially with the "Mother" supposedly giving the article a little juice by sayng the Mother in law has a history of "mental illness" which probably means, depression, anxiety which something like 80% of our country has one or the other with the top medications being subscribed are for anxiety and depression. I put very litle faith in a EX anyone who calls anyone from the EX family mentally disturbed in any fashion as they try to pile up police reports for the courts in their custody battle. Something I feel, if true, wasted alot of police man hours yesterday that the parents should be paying for along with a chunk for the EX Mother in law for calling her mentally disturbed. :/ Just my personal theory on the case.
