-- now there are new developments on the search for a very sick eleven year old girl from Arizona the US Border Patrol recently stopping emily's father as she is called.
As he was crossing in Arizona now -- As she is called by police was undergoing treatment for leukemia last week in Phoenix.
Won her mother removed her daughter's IV and walked her out of the hospital without notifying doctors have a child has a catheter in her heart.
If it's not removed there's a possibility.
An infection could kill her.
Sargent Steve martyrs from the Phoenix police departments with me now -- thank you for your time you've got a pretty good mystery on your hands I want to start with the father.
Crossing into Arizona what.
Day was that that he was -- Yeah this was late Saturday night into Sunday morning we understand Border Patrol saw him as he was entering the US from Mexico into Arizona.
And you stopped him and asked him where his daughter us what did he -- yet.
Yeah -- behalf of our department the Border Patrol stopped -- few questions about.
About -- her whereabouts.
Sadly he didn't provide much information to us he denied having any knowledge of and we've been removed from the hospital.
He denied have been aware are being involved in that.
And it sadly -- compromising information as to where we could find Amelie.
So we're still kind of in that situation trying to find -- did you know the last time he had contact with -- daughter.
You know -- get into that information on Saturday when we believe that he has had some contact with her.
Over the -- and and possibly even the night that she was released.
Seems a bit odd to us that a father would not know where.
Sick daughter would be I think you're you're exactly right about that are you still in touch with concerned.
Yeah we are he is I understand in California we are trying to keep in.
Contact with him to see if -- by chance maybe the family Emily and and her mother.
My contact him for some reason you also put out their real names you were just using.
Generic names in the past to protect their identity but you say his name is Lewis struck a -- He's 46 and the mother is Nora brought -- this age 35 why is it important to get their name -- announcement.
Well really we had kind of run into a road block we hit the wall here with with information and by we believe by releasing their names.
It potentially could generate some information from someone in the community who might.
See them somewhere or me chicken in -- hotel whatever might be.
That -- provide that information that'll help us get -- is some help she.
She needs a lot of help.
And what what does this danger of infection with this catheter that's has a connection to her heart.
And an amputated right arm.
This is a young lady who should not be far from medical treatment at all.
Absolutely and in fact that's that's our primary concern in this particular case -- -- she is eleven years old has already had a lot of challenges in her young life.
Diagnosed leukemia going for.
To get some treatment for leukemia contracts -- infection.
They have to remove her amputate her right arm and now her mother has kind of -- her -- and a precarious situation where.
Sadly could result in her death.
And so we're extremely concerned about that Odyssey time is of the essence -- of the child and mother -- US citizens and I'm not sure where this trail is going to lead.
But had her mother tried to take -- from the hospital earlier resist the only time that you know.
-- we understand that there may have been some other incidents not necessarily at this particular hospital but at other hospitals -- she has taken Emily.
To receive some treatment they left prematurely.
-- -- no details about those other incidents but RC in this particular case.
It it could be something that could.
Result in the in the child's death so again we're works really concerned one more thing that makes it's difficult you say they list somewhat of a nomadic life what does that mean.
They can get to Phoenix Arizona to get treatment for.
-- Emily however they're not from the valley they have some relatives that live.
In Arizona but not in this particular area.
They also have other family that is in California and they tend to move between Arizona California and Mexico.
We have not necessary -- -- is to determine if they have an actual.
Home where the actually spend most of their time but these -- -- it's -- a time and all.
Here -- sergeant we're gonna stay in touch with you invest a -- okay if this helps you get the word out and get that young girl some help.
Let's hope that's the case for Steve -- than it was a joke you got -- in -- questions about these or anything else it's.
