A Amber Alert for 16-year-old Hannah Anderson, who is believed to have been abducted by James Lee DiMaggio, has caused the FBI to work both with local San Diego County authorities as well as Mexican officials in the search.

The Amber Alert has been extended from Boulevard, California to statewide to Oregon, Washington, Canada, and Nevada, and now to Mexico.

Sheriff’s Lt. Glenn Giannantonio said on Thursday that authorities have received “lots and lots of tips from across the country,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

 “We are following up on each and every one of them that seems to have merit,” he said.

DiMaggio is believed to have murdered Hannah’s mother, Christine, and her son, Ethan, and kidnapped Hannah. He could be driving a blue Nissan Versa with a California license platr, 6WCU986, or he might have switched vehicles at some point.
