Two young Monona County boys are home and safe after they were the subject of an Amber Alert Tuesday night which led to the arrest of their non-custodial mother in eastern Nebraska.
Sheriff Steven Hespen of Dodge County, Nebraska says a motorist heard the alert on the radio, spotted the blue pickup truck and called 9-1-1.
Deputies responded and pulled the truck over near Fremont, Nebraska.
Sheriff Hespen says inititial reports were that the woman, 30 year old Carli Eich was high on methamphetamine when she abducted the boys in Monona County:
Eich is charged with felony violation of a custodial order. She remains jailed in Dodge County pending extradition to Iowa to face the charge.
The boys, ages one month and four years, were picked up by their grandparents in Fremont Tuesday night.
Hespen says the Amber Alert performed flawlessly in the apprehension of this interstate fugitive.
Eich was supposed to have reported to a drug rehabilitation clinic in Sioux City on Tuesday.
