ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities have canceled an Amber Alert that New Mexico State Police issued for a 3-year-old girl, saying the child has been found safe.

New Mexico State Police said in a statement earlier Tuesday morning that the girl, identified as Merleah Guinn, was taken from her home in Santa Rosa, a small town east of Albuquerque. At the time, they said she had been taken by an “unknown abductor.”

The girl’s mother tells the Albuquerque Journal (https://bit.ly/2asnQxv) that she took the girl from her father’s house because she was concerned about her.

She says the father may not have remembered that she had picked up the child because he was not fully awake at the time.

Sgt. Elizabeth Armijo says state police are continuing to investigate and will release details as they become available.
