Man who saw Amber Alert credited with girl's return

Posted:

LAKE MILLS, Wis. (AP) -- A man who saw an Amber Alert on TV and called police is credited with aiding in the safe return of a Milwaukee toddler.
   
Paul Smith called 911 after spotting the SUV and suspect included in the alert at Pyramid Liquor and Motel in Lake Mills Sunday. Authorities say a 32-year-old man had carjacked the SUV in Milwaukee earlier in the day by forcing the child's mother from the vehicle. Three-year-old Aubri Degeffered was still inside.
   
WTMJ-TV reports Smith says he did what anyone would do and is no hero. Smith says he glad the child is OK and back with her family.
   
Officials say the suspect did not resist arrest and is expected to be charged this week.
