Authorities are defending the system against complaints that an Amber Alert late Thursday night was excessively disruptive.

Police say a tip from a motorist who recognized the suspect vehicle described in the alert led them directly to a 41-year-old man who is now charged with first-degree murder in the death of his daughter.

It also led police back to his Brampton, Ontario home where they found the body of 11-year-old Riya Rajkumar.

Roopesh Rajkumar was arrested about 130-kilometres north of Toronto.

He remained in police custody in hospital Friday evening, however, investigators weren’t commenting on his medical issues.
