Amber Alert update: Lampasas mother has been wanted for kidnapping since June 3, according to reports

Whitehead has been ordered by the District Court of Lampasas to surrender the children to their biological father and has refused to do so, according to deputies.

LAMPASAS COUNTY, Texas — More updates have been released involving an Amber Alert for a mother who abducted her three children Saturday night, according to the Lampasas County Sheriff's Office.

Kristine Whitehead had made numerous allegations toward the father of her children in the past several months, all of which were thoroughly investigated, according to deputies. In each case the allegations were found to be untrue by the court. 

The father's attorney, Byron Barnhill, told 6 News on Monday that Whitehead is likely just a few hours away from central Texas, though it is not clear if she is using the same vehicle.  

The  Amber Alert was issued by the Lampasas Sheriff's Office on July 22 after Whitehead failed to show up to her custody hearing. She had been ordered by the District Court of Lampasas/Bell Counties to surrender the children to their biological father on June 3.

Barnhill told 6 News Whitehead was told by 27th Judicial District Court Judge John Gauntt to surrender the children to their father at the Copperas Cove Police Department on that day. He said Whitehead agreed but then never showed up. 

Barnhill said Whitehead still had an another attorney trying to represent her until July 22, but that attorney had to withdraw representation because Whitehead had not communicated with them.   

The Lampasas County Sheriff’s Office already had a warrant out on Whitehead for kidnapping before that time. The Amber Alert below was then released on July 22. 

The children have been identified as 3-year-old Kristine, 4-year-old Christine and 6-year-old Christopher Robertson II.

They were last seen June 3 at 3 p.m. at the 400 Block of Pecan Street, according to reports. It is not specified what the children or mother were wearing. According to Texas Alerts, the mother is allegedly driving a White Toyota Tundra with the license plate, GJZ8544.

The Lampasas County Sheriff’s Office has enlisted the help of the US Marshals Office and the FBI in the locating and recovering of the children for a safe return, as stated by the sheriff's office. 

If you or anyone who has seen, knows the whereabouts or can provide current and solid information to contact them at (512) 556-8255 or your local law enforcement to help in the safe recovery of the children.
