PHOENIX — A woman who was suspected of abducting her 9-month-old daughter, triggering a statewide Amber Alert on Saturday, has been arrested, according to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.
Belinda Hartman, 33, was arrested on Saturday after officers found her and her infant daughter in northern Arizona, near Sedona.
Officers discovered Hartman was over the influence of methamphetamine. She had later admitted to using the drug within the past two days.
Hartman was arrested and booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center on possession and use of a dangerous drug, before being released on a “promise to appear.”
Her daughter is currently in the custody of Arizona Department of Child Safety officials.
An Amber Alert was triggered on Saturday after Hartman allegedly texted her boyfriend, who is also the father of her child, threatening to kill herself and the baby.
The pair were last seen on Friday for a meeting with Hartman’s boyfriend in the Cottonwood area.
