SYRACUSE, N.Y. (CBS/AP) — Pennsylvania State Police say the Amber Alert issued for an abducted 10-year-old girl from Schuylkill County has been cancelled.
Police say the child has been found safe.
Police in upstate New York were looking for a man who they say abducted 10-year-old Alexandria Jade Long in Gordon, Pa.
An Amber Alert was issued Thursday for a green Saab last seen traveling north on I-81 near Syracuse. State police say the car was believed to be heading to Norwood, north of Potsdam in St. Lawrence County.
Police say the suspect, Peter Tarbox, also of Gordon, Pa., is a former acquaintance of the abducted girl’s mother. They say he’s a stranger to the child.
It is unclear if Tarbox has been located at this time.
