UPDATE: Missing Newaygo County Toddler Found Alive


UPDATE: Amber Rose Smith, the toddler missing from her Newaygo County home has been found safe. She was found by DNR searchers approximately 1 3/4 miles from her home, standing in the woods. The Michigan State Police have issued an Amber Alert for Amber Rose Smith (age 2 1/2), who disappeared from her Newaygo County home on Tuesday Amber Rose was last seen around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon at her home in Barton Township in northeast Newaygo County by her father. She was wearing a black tank top with a pink bow, and may have been wearing jeans and without shoes.

Amber’s father says that he stepped away for a minute to use the restroom while the girl was watching television. When he came out, he yelled for her, but she didn’t come or respond. He did note that the families dogs came running out of the woods, and that Amber would occasionally go outside and play with the dogs without telling anyone where she was going. Smith says he searched for about a half an hour before calling 911.

Authorities say they are concerned because it is a very remote area and there are lakes and streams nearby. Multiple counties are assisting in the search in the area which borders the Manistee National Forest.

The Newaygo County Sheriff resumed the search Wednesday morning at 7 a.m.

Anyone with information should call Newaygo County Central Dispatch at (231) 689-5288.
