Amber Alert ends; crews try to reach child's body

Amber alert canceled; crews in New Mexico try to reach body of child found in hole By The Associated Press

CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) ' New Mexico authorities have cancelled an Amber Alert for 4-year-old Samuel Jones of Carlsbad.

The cancellation comes after police located the body of a child in a narrow hole in the backyard of a Carlsbad residence.

Authorities didn't immediately explain the reasons for the cancellation but earlier they said they were fairly sure it's Samuel's body.

He was reported missing from his home next door to the hole on Saturday.

Recovery efforts began Sunday afternoon, with a large tracked excavator on scene along with metal shoring typically used in pipeline construction projects.

Crews were still working at the site Sunday night.
