An Amber Alert was issued tonight for two sisters kidnapped in Pomona, allegedly by their father.

The abduction of 4-year-old Aurora Akira Adame and 2-year-old sister Valarie occurred around 7 p.m., police said.

Aurora was wearing a pink shirt with a heart on it, and spandex pants in a cheetah print. Valarie was wearing a white shirt with flowers on the shoulders and black pants, police said.

The suspect is Pete Valencia Adame, 43, described as possibly armed and dangerous.

Police said Adame may be driving a 2014 gray Jeep Patriot with license plate number 7CJF267.

The Amber Alert was issued at 11:34 p.m. Friday, the second for the day. Earlier, a biological father is believed to have kidnapped his 2-year-old son.

Lets break this down a father kidnapped his own children? These are BS alerts about family issues that have no business causing so much alarm. Really?

When an Amber alert is mobilized, it goes out to the whole state. Why? Because people move. Remember the Amber alert a month or two ago out of LA? Children found in Oceanside in north San Diego County (which means they traveled through Orange County most likely, and if not, the Inland Empire). We all need to be vigilant if children's lives are at risk, do we not? And unstable parents present a danger to children more often than we want to realize. Just ask the father of the three little girls killed by their mother this week near Torrance.

This is exactly why I don't look at "Amber Alerts" anymore. This alert should be reserved for children abducted by strangers NOT parents!! This alert is being ruined by cops using it this way. My parents were divorced and there were times my Mom took me from my Father and vice versa. This certainly didn't warrant and Amber alert! Save the Amber Alert STOP using it this way people will stop paying attention!

Abductions by parents are just as valid. The reason parents find themselves abducting there own children is that they were found to be unfit in the first place. NOT SAYING ALL CHILDREN HAVE BEEN TAKEN AWAY FOR A VALID REASON....as I'm sure in some cases there has been unfair justice. Can't take chances when it comes to children especially some psyco parents that end up killing them. We need to keep our children safe and be aware of our surroundings...this is why we have amber alerts on any abductions... parents and strangers both. Many children have been saved by these amber alerts.
