The Amber Alert for 11-year-old Jessica Smith has been canceled in New Mexico. State police said there is no updated information that she may be in the state.

Police said Jessica is still missing and considered in danger. The efforts to find her will continue until she is located by other law enforcement agencies.

Jessica was reportedly taken by her mother, Kimberly Smith who family described as mentally ill and suicidal. Authorities said she has threatened to injure her children in the past.

Jessica was taken by her mother from their Indiana Avenue home overnight Monday, police said. While the mother does have custody of Jessica, authorities said they do have evidence that has led them to believe the child is in danger while in her care.

The Amber Alert in Texas is still active. Police said the girl's mother drives a 2007 silver Mazda CX-9 with Texas plates BMZ 390 with a Harley Davidson pink and green decal on the rear window.
