UPDATE: Safe Harbor Speaks About Abduction November 21st 7:00 p.m.
CBS NewsChannel 5 spoke to Lynn Storey-Huylar, the executive director of Safe Harbor, about Tuesday's abduction. She says the organization did what they could in this situation. "If someone comes into our facility and acts in an aggressive manner and attempted to leave with a child, our first line of defense is always to call 911," said Storey-Huylar. "Which happened yesterday. We have a panic button here that is dispatched right into the call center. That button was pushed and law enforcement was alerted immediately when the situation arose."
Storey-Huylar says she's been with Safe Harbor for 13 years, and this is the first time a child was taken. "Yesterday (Tuesday) was definitely a tragedy for this community and also for this center. We deeply care about kids and the safety of kids, so this was deeply concerning and upsetting to us and the community as well."
She went on to tell us, Safe Harbor is not a secured facility. "We don't have bars on our windows or locks on our doors, we are a volunteer facility where people can come to have visitation with their children."
CBS NewsChannel 5 asked Storey-Huylar whether there is anything they can improve upon in the future to make sure a situation like this doesn't happen again. She says Safe Harbor needs to "do a better job at looking at people" and their situations. "This individual, I want to make it clear, we were aware of this individual, that she is extremely violent, she's extremely mentally ill and she's extremely unpredictable, which just made for a perfect storm."

ALERT: Kidnapped Child November 20th 2:30 p.m.
Cheyenne Police are searching for a 2-year-old Cheyenne girl, kidnapped Tuesday afternoon from Safe Harbor.
They say, her biological mother, 34-year-old Misty Lea Stricker-Campos, took her during a visit to Safe Harbor at 2712 Thomes. Stricker does not have custody of Angeleana Tyler, but was granted visitation. Stricker was last seen southeast of Safe Harbor. Police believe Angeleana is in danger. Authorities believe the two may be heading to California or Mexico. Stricker has a history of suicide threats and drug abuse, namely meth. A person close to her told CBS NewsChannel 5 that she doesn't have a vehicle, so if she were to leave Cheyenne she would either hitch-hike or be in a car with a friend. There is no suspect car at this time.
Stricker is approximately 5' 8'' and 210 lbs. She has blonde hair and hazel eyes. Stricker was last seen wearing a black t-shirt with a logo on the front, gray sweat pants, and carrying a green backpack.
According to Cheyenne Police, Angeleana is a 2-year-old Hispanic girl, 24 inches tall (the Amber Alert says she is 3 feet tall) and weighs 30 lbs. She has long brown hair that was last seen in a ponytail with a bow. She was last seen wearing a brown sweater, brown sweat pants and pink shoes. She has pierced ears with diamond earrings. Angeleana has Epilepsy and is susceptible to seizures. Authorities don't believe Stricker has her medication.
