People are breathing a sigh of release as the 14 year old Rochester girl is being returned. Joanna Coates was taken by Robert Gonzalez, 41, with the intent of bringing her down to New York City. She was last seen in the LaSalle Street area of Rochester, and is now en route to a hospital. This comes less than one day after the amber alert was issued.
The mother of the girl told Gonzalez, who is a convicted felon, to "go find a women and leave my child alone."
