Mother taken into custody after saying she wanted her child to "go be with the Lord"

Posted: Updated:

A six-year-old girl has been found safe after her mother pulled her from school on Monday morning to "go be with the Lord."

Danika L. Packard was found just five miles away from Woodward Elementary School in Spokane, Washington with her mother, 35-year-old Tracy Packard after an Amber Alert was issued hours earlier.

Danika's father, who feared for both Danika and Tracy's safety after he was notified by the school around 10.30am, was reunited with his daughter Monday afternoon while the mother is being evaluated.
