HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — The AMBER Alert for a missing Hampton infant has been canceled.

Eight-month-old Chloe Johnson and her mother, 34-year-old Keir Johnson, were reported missing earlier this month. Hampton police say the two were last seen Sunday, April 30 in the 1900 block of Hastings Drive. Johnson was heading to Buckroe Beach. No one has seen or heard from Keir since.

Last week, state police issued an AMBER Alert last week on behalf of Hampton police for Chloe. Virginia State Police announced the termination of the AMBER Alert Thursday night. State police say the alert was terminated in accordance with AMBER Alert policy.

“Standard procedures for a Virginia AMBER Alert dictate a 12-hour activation period, unless there are extenuating circumstances,” Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corrine Geller said in an email Thursday night. “The AMBER Alert for Chloe Johnson was originally activated May 11, 2017. Upon completion of seven days, the activation has now been terminated.”

According to Virginia’s Amber Alert website, Chloe and Keir Johnson are still considered missing and endangered.

On Monday, WAVY learned Newport News police were taking over the investigation into Chloe and Keir’s disappearance. The car police believe the two were in was recovered in Newport News on Mother’s Day morning about 10 miles from Johnson’s Hampton home.

If you see Chloe or Keir or know anything about their disappearance, call Hampton police immediately at 757-727-6505 or Virginia State Police at 1-800-822-4453.
