Statewide Amber Alert for Hannah, Ethan Anderson

By  | 

RENO, NV - A statewide activation of an EAS Amber Alert is in effect for Nevada.

Authorities are searching for James Dimaggio, the suspect accused of killing Christina Anderson and of kidnapping Hannah Anderson, 16, and Ethan Anderson, 8. They said at one point only Hannah may be with Dimaggio, but have since backtracked, saying police haven't confirmed that. But several media reports indicate Ethan may have been killed along with Christine.

Dimaggio is described as a 5-foot-9-inch, 40-year-old, white male, with brown hair and brown eyes, who weighs 150 pounds.

Hannah Anderson is described as a 16-year-old, white female. She is 5-feet-7-inches tall and weighs 115 pounds. Anderson has blonde hair and blue eyes. There is a possibility that she has a nose stud and pierced ears.

Ethan Anderson is described as an 8-year-old, white juvenile. He weighs 65 pounds and is 4-feet -11-inches tall. He has sandy blonde hair. The color of his eyes is unknown and his clothing is unknown.

The suspect's car is described as a 2013 blue Nissan Versa with California plates 6WCU986. Police say evidence found in the remains of DiMaggio's house east of San Diego suggests he may have fled with homemade explosives and that his car might be booby-trapped.

DiMaggio is considered armed and dangerous. He and the two victims may be headed to Canada or Texas. Police have reported possible sightings near Alturas, California, Lakeview, Oregon and Bremerton, Washington.
