AMBER ALERT CANCELLED

An Amber Alert was issued just after 9:30 p.m. on Thursday for 37-year-old Allison Gokey and her 9-year-old son Cameron Gokey.

According to Harris County Sheriff’s Office Gokey checked her son out of school at Krahan Elementary just after noon on Thursday. At the time the alert was issued officials said she was emotionally unstable.

The description of Gokey and her son along with the license number of her blue Ford Escape was broadcast nationwide.

Just before 10 p.m. an alert evening manager at the Best Western in Willis pointed out the Amber Alert to the night manager who had just come on. When he saw the license number her told his assistant that car with that license number is sitting right outside our window.

It was then they realized the female at the counter who was waiting for credit card information to be faxed to the hotel was the woman in the Amber Alert. Her son was with her also.

The night manager called 911 and within two minutes he said Willis Police were on the scene, moments later a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Officer then another Willis unit.

Officers detained the woman approximately one hour and after conferring with Harris County she was allowed to go along with he son who is in her legal custody.

According to Gokey she was fleeing an abusive relationship.

It is still unclear why an Amber Alert was issued or what prompted it to be initiated. Who made authorities feel she was not stable even though she was allowed to remove her son from school by checking him out and not just removing him.
