The hospital the sick girl in Mexico was in also urged her safe return.

"Phoenix Children's Hospital is deeply concerned about Emily's safety and well-being and continues to cooperate with law enforcement," the hospital said in a statement. "If Emily's family has questions about her care, we encourage open communication and discussion of options with the care team."

Martos said that the sick girl in Mexico needs to be returned, or the family will face criminal charges.
