Amber Alert Update: Teen Found Safe in Idaho; Man Killed

Posted: Updated:

 

   CASCADE, Idaho (AP) _ Authorities say a man suspected of killing a California woman and her young son before fleeing with her 16-year-old daughter has been killed in the Idaho wilderness and the teen has been found safe.
    San Diego Sheriff William Gore says 40-year-old James Lee DiMaggio was killed Saturday by FBI tactical agents at the north end of Morehead Lake. The shooting came after officers participating in a massive manhunt spotted a campsite from the air.     Gore says San Diego sheriff's authorities have notified Hannah Anderson's father that she was rescued. Gore says ``He was very relieved and very excited and looking forward to being reunited with his daughter.''
    According to Gore, plans are being made to reunite the two, probably by Sunday morning.
    Federal and local law enforcement spent Saturday combing through Idaho's rugged Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in search of Hannah and DiMaggio. The wilderness is the largest roadless area in the lower 48 states.
