Amber Alert canceled as Sharonville police search for kidnapping suspect
SHARONVILLE, Ohio (WXIX) - Sharonville police are searching for the suspect who stole a car with a child inside of it, which launched a now canceled Amber Alert.
The 1-year-old girl was turned over to security at Good Samaritan Hospital around 3:40 p.m., according to the Sharonville Police Department.
The infant was in the back seat of a 2004 Honda Accord when it was stolen from the Sunoco gas station in the 11000 block of Chester Road, Sharonville police say.
Wanted in connection with the alleged kidnapping and vehicle theft is 23-year-old Brian Roseberry, police say. Witness information helped lead to Roseberry being identified.
He is described as 5′7″, 155 pounds, and was last seen with no shirt and wearing fitted ripped acid-washed jeans and blue shoes, police say.
Roseberry has blonde hair and hazel eyes.
The vehicle might have an Ohio license plate that is JCE1394 in the back window, according to Sharonville police. The car is missing its front bumper.
Roseberry could be on southbound I-71 in Cincinnati, possibly heading to Covington, police say.
Call 911 if you see the suspect or vehicle.
When the alert was first issued, Sharonville Lt. Walter Cordes says an all-out search started.
“We had agencies from all the way to Columbus to Louisville and Lexington looking for the car, looking for the subject,” according to Lt. Cordes. “Hamilton County sheriff’s had a helicopter in the area, we had agencies all over Hamilton County and the surrounding areas that have been helping us, as well as, two shifts here at Sharonville that put everything we could together.”
