An Amber Alert Friday ended with the missing child being found alive. The Iowa Department of Public Safety issued the alert late in the morning after students reported that nine-year-old Gloria Bonilla Lopez of Ottumwa had gotten into a car with a man at a bus stop around eight a-m. Police initiated a search for a green car and 29-year-old Brendan Stanley, who was believed to be the man who’d taken Lopez. Police found the car in Van Buren County, about 25 miles southeast of Ottumwa around three in the afternoon. Police continued an air and ground search and eventually found both Lopez and Sanley in a wooded area along the Des Moines River. Stanley is apparently an aquaintance of Lopez’s family. Police had not released any other details on the case late Friday.
