Worcester Police issue Amber Alert for 3-year-old girl

Amber Alert issued for missing 3-year-old Worcester girl

A trooper smashed a window and both were hospitalized.

Rickheit spent Wednesday night in St Vincent's Hospital in Worcester under police guard.

The three-year-old tyke has been transported to UMass Medical Center.

Rickheit was later transferred to the State Police barracks in Sturbridge and is scheduled to be arraigned in Dudley District Court Thursday on charges of attempted murder, assault and battery on a child, and reckless endangerment of a child, Procopio wrote.

When Leeann Rickheit stuffed her car's tailpipe with clothing and left the vehicle running with both her and her daughter inside, she left a window cracked thinking it would not kill the 3-year-old, she told police in an interview, according to prosecutors.

According to Fox News 38-year-old Lee-Ann Rickheit of Worcester, Massachusetts, called a relative in the same city on Wednesday and a comment that she made led the relative to call the police. She has brown hair, brown eyes, is 3' tall and weighs around 40 pounds.

Ella Abbott, 3, is described as a light-skinned black female.

According to police, the two are possibly traveling in a blue 2007 Hyundai Sonata with MA license plate number 4PG367.

Rickheit "frequented the wooded area" where she was found, according to information gathered by state police, often sleeping there in her auto.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact Worcester Police at 508-799-8606 or call 911. Golden Alerts are issued for youngsters who are accepted to be in risk.
