CASHION, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say an infant has been found unharmed in West Texas after she was abducted in Oklahoma.

Dispatcher Traci Tate with the Kingfisher County Sheriff’s Department says the 5-month-old girl was found "safe and sound" early Friday morning.

Tate said later that the girl was found in Seminole, Texas, by local authorities. She said no one was "in custody" but said she could not elaborate. She said that the department had no further details but that the Seminole police chief would be making a statement Friday morning.

In Texas, the Gaines County Sheriff’s Department says no arrests have been made.

The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety canceled the Amber Alert it had issued for the girl.

Authorities had said earlier the girl was abducted near Cashion, in central Oklahoma.
