  • Coombs said AMBER Alerts typically are in effect only eight to 10 hours, but that DPS allowed the alert to stay in place for nearly 48 hours.  The original AMBER Alert for Shockley, who was last seen Tuesday evening, was issued Wednesday morning.

    Coombs said there has been no significant break in the case which resulted in the cancellation. 

    Police said Friday night that tips were continuing to trickle in, and officers were following up on all of them. 

    Family members said they would continue to pass out flyers over the weekend in hopes of bringing the 5 year old home safely.

    "That's all we can do - just try to keep getting the word out," said Dbra Sloan, Shockley's great-aunt. "We are going to continue this until something is done, until she's found, until she's home or until the bitter end."
