6-year-old Stafford County sisters safely located; mother in custody

Two 6-year-old sisters have been safely located after authorities say they were abducted by their mother Tuesday afternoon from their Stafford County elementary school.

Deputies say 32-year-old Rosa Gregg picked up her daughters - Riley and Regan Crowder – from Stafford Elementary School despite there being an active protective order filed against her.

School administrators told the sheriff's office they had no knowledge of the protective order.

Gregg is currently in custody. She faces parental abduction charges. The alleged abduction triggered an Amber Alert.
