The mother who took her daughter to Kentucky which led to an Amber Alert says she is going to keep fighting for her daughter.


Jennifer Ansari is currently in jail in Louisville, Kentucky awaiting extradition to Hamilton County on a custody interference charge.  An Amber Alert was issued Tuesday night after Ansari took her daughter, Sophia Snow, to Kentucky.  Police said Ansari took Sophia after she learned she had lost custody to the girl's father, Aaron Snow.

In a jailhouse interview with WHAS-TV in Louisville, Ansari said the Amber Alert was a bit extreme. 

"Sophia would never be in danger in my care," Ansari said.  "I was a substitute teacher for Washington Township as well as I had my own business as a licensed child care provider for 13 years.  Being a danger to children is the least concern."

Sophia was not harmed during the incident and has since been turned over to her father.  Ansari said the court order transferring custody was never certified and made several accusations toward Aaron Snow and the legal system in Hamilton County which led to the transfer.

"(Sophia) was determined that she didn't want to go with him," Ansari said.  "Of course, it's not her choice but I felt at that time, emotionally and mentally, it was important for us to be with my family."

Ansari says her daughter is the victim in this case.  She says she will continue to fight for her daughter's best interest, which she says, is not living in Florida with her father.
