A 7-month-old girl has been located in Texas after Edmond police detectives searched for the child and her mother.

Destiny Jewell was last seen Saturday night in Edmond. She was located in Texas, Edmond police spokeswoman Jennifer Monroe said.

The case will be handled by Okmulgee County Department of Human Services employees and the girl’s mother, Monroe said.

Destiny was considered missing and endangered, but police now say the girl’s parents are getting a divorce. There have been no papers filed or court orders that would prohibit the mother from taking the girl with her, Monroe said.
