Woman who sparked Amber Alert turned over to Indiana officials

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The woman who sparked an Amber Alert when officials say she failed to hand over her 8-year-old daughter to her father has been turned over to Indiana officials.

Jennifer Ansari was supposed to hand Sophia Snow over to her father by Sept. 3, but she did not, police said. A judge in Hamilton County, Ind., had ruled on Aug. 29 that the girl is supposed to be in her father's custody.  Court records show custody was granted to Sophia's father, Aaron Snow, on that day.

Ansari's parents say their daughter believes believe Aaron Snow isn't fit to be a father. 

In a jailhouse interview on Sept. 5, Jennifer Ansari told WDRB's Stephan Johnson why she ignored a court order: "At no time was I running, no time did I abduct the child.  What you have to understand is that I had this child in my possession every day."

Ansari was arrested at a family member's home on Hi-View Lane in the south end.

"Sophia has been with me since birth," she said.  "I am her parent. I feel like I am her only parent until he wants to, out of convenience, play dad."

But a Hamilton County, Indiana judge recently signed an order granting Sophia's father custody, to which she says, "I noticed the order wasn't certified.  I did a little research and I felt that something didn't seem right."

She says she feels the child's father is abusive and is seeking custody to avoid paying child support.

Ansari is charged with custodial interference.
