PHOENIX The father of a girl with leukemia who was taken out of an Arizona hospital says his daughter is doing well and being treated in Mexico.
Phoenix police have been looking for 11-year-old Emily since a surveillance video showed the girls mother walking her out of Phoenix Childrens Hospital. Authorities say the girl underwent a month of chemotherapy and had been treated for an infection that forced doctors to amputate her arm.
Police say the girl is at risk of infection if she isnt brought back.
But the girls father, Luis Bracamontes, tells NBC News she is safe and being treated in Mexico.
He blames the Phoenix hospital for the loss of his daughters arm and says the family was pressured over medical bills.
Hospital officials say patient care is not based on ability to pay.
