BELEN, N.M. (AP) - Police in Belen say a 5-year-old girl who was taken by her mother in a custodial interference situation has been found safe.

They say 36-year-old Alicia Trejo allegedly broke into the residence of the child’s grandmother Wednesday night, abducted the girl and then fled the scene on foot.

Police say Trejo has no legal custodial rights to Marissa Bibiano and an Amber Alert was issued.

Belen police say the girl was located Thursday afternoon, but no details were immediately released.

Police say Trejo was arrested without incident. They didn’t immediately say what charges she may be facing.
