SARASOTA, Fla. — The Sarasota County Sheriff's department canceled a purple alert that was issued Monday night for a 43-year-old woman and her 5-year-old son.

According to the Sheriff's Office, Corinne M. Dunnigan, 43, left her home on the 4100 block of Central Sarasota Parkway with her son Saturday and hasn't been seen since. The sheriff's department said Dunnigan is believed to be driving northeast from Alabama through Georgia.

Dunnigan is 5'9", 145 pounds with brown hair and green eyes. She was last seen driving a 2022 black Hyundai Santa Fe with a Florida tag of 8164AN.

The alert was canceled after an investigation revealed Dunnigan didn't meet the criteria, the sheriff's office said on Wednesday. No other updates were provided.
