New evidence has been released in connection to the Marana Amber Alert case from July.

Bedjaii Harnesberry, 33, is facing multiple charges for reportedly taking her three biological children from their custodial grandmother.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department has released photographs from the investigation. The photos appear to show the kitchen of the home where the children were reportedly taken.

Authorities investigating the case say they found acetone, bleach, and measuring supplies on the kitchen counter, concluding that the two ingredients could be used to make chloroform. Documents show the grandmother showed police the items because she thought they were a little suspicious.

Photos from PCSD show some of those ingredients on the counter, including a bottle of bleach.

A spokesperson for PCSD says when the children were found they had no signs or symptoms of being exposed to chemicals.

Other newly released photos include what appear to be screenshots of conversations between one of the children and their former foster parent. At one point one of the children shared their location with the foster parent.

Authorities were able to track down Harnesberry and the kids outside of Globe thanks to the social media messages.
