'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A Lincoln-Lemington woman who was placed on the Allegheny County Sheriff Department's “Most Wanted” list of fugitives was arrested on Wednesday as she rested on a living room couch with her infant granddaughter, sheriff's Sgt. Douglas Clark said.

Danyell Moore, 38, was placed on the list after a bench warrant was issued for incidents in October involving her 10-year-old son, Clark said. The boy was placed in the custody of his grandmother after he told school officials that his mother had disappeared the night before, Clark said.

Moore also is accused of taking the boy without his grandmother's knowledge, prompting her to file a missing persons report, Clark said. The boy was returned unharmed four days later.

Deputies made the arrest after receiving a tip Wednesday morning that Moore could be found in a home on Meadow Avenue in Larimer, Clark said.
