SOUTH SALT LAKE — A woman at the center of a Utah AMBER Alert issued early Sunday morning has been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping her daughter who she does not have custody of.

Courtney Lynn Crow, 25, was arrested Sunday and faces one count of first-degree felony child kidnapping.

An AMBER Alert was sent out at about 3:30 a.m. for Crow's 4-year-old daughter, who authorities said was abducted by Crow at about 12:45 a.m. The alert was canceled around 6 a.m. after the child was found safe and unharmed.

Police say crow later admitted to taking the girl and fleeing the state with the intent to raise her. Police say she drove toward Wendover and crossed the Nevada-Utah state line with the child.
