An 11-year-old girl whose mother took her from a Phoenix hospital where she was receiving treatment for leukemia appeared to be safe and healthy in an interview broadcast on Wednesday.

Phoenix police have been searching for Emily Bracamontes since her mother took her from Phoenix Children's Hospital on Nov. 28. Authorities say she could die from an infection because she had a catheter inserted into her heart to provide medication.

Emily and mother Norma Bracamontes appeared Wednesday on ABC's "Good Morning America." Norma Bracamontes blames the hospital for an infection that led to her daughter's right arm being amputated and for intimidating the family over hospital bills.

Emily says she feels well because the doctors at the unidentified Mexican clinic "love me so much."
