Parents take cancer patient out of hospital

PHOENIX. -- Sunday, Phoenix police are still on the lookout for a missing cancer patient who might be in danger.

Hospital surveillance cameras captured images of an 11-year-old cancer patient, Emily, being taken from the hospital by her mother.

She starts in one outfit, then is seen wearing different clothes and a wig.

The young girl's arm was amputated because of her condition and officials warn if her heart is exposed to an infection she could be in real danger.

Police said Emily's parents could face criminal charges.

Police have also said it has been hard to track them down because they are from Mexico and have no locally listed records.
