An infant is safe and two people are in custody after an AMBER Alert was issued Wednesday, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.

"Betty has been located and is safe. Two suspects have been taken into custody in Logan County, Colorado," the patrol tweeted just before 1:00 a.m. Thursday.

Police said they were able to find her after a tip came in from the AMBER Alert system.

According to the Sidney Police Chief, Betty was placed with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) at birth because of an ongoing child neglect investigation.

They said DHHS was starting the process of reuniting Betty with the parents, but they took off early Tuesday morning with Betty.

Police said the Cheyenne County attorney is working to extradite Maria Campa, 37, and Carlos Zamora Jr., 41, from Colorado to Nebraska.

A hearing is set for August 13 in the custody case.

Court documents indicate Campa tested positive for meth at the time of Betty's birth.
