Woman Arrested For Making False Report And Causing Amber Alert In Maries County

A woman accused of making a false report causing an Amber Alert yesterday (Thursday) afternoon in Maries County is now arrested.

According to the Maries County Sheriff’s Department they received a call that 22 year old Alison Summerford and her 10 year old child were abducted.

That alert was canceled within an hour.

Deputies say Summerford had her 16 year old brother make the initial call to deputies about a man abducting her and her child, however deputies say the entire story was false.

Authorities say that Summerford and the man actually met on a dating site, and she asked him to meet her at the Vienna Walmart to get some money so that she could buy a bus ticket to go to Arkansas.

Summerford’s brother was interviewed by juvenile officers and is back home, her child is now in protective custody.
