BLADENBORO, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina sheriff’s office says a 4-month-old girl taken from a day care has been found safe.

WRAL reports the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office says the child’s mother took the baby from the day care on Monday evening, but family members convinced her to surrender the child to sheriff’s deputies, which she did on Tuesday, when an Amber Alert was issued.

The sheriff’s office says the mother and an unidentified man were discovered at a bus station in Lumberton. As of Tuesday afternoon, there was no word on whether charges would be filed.

Authorities say the child had been placed in foster care under custody of the Columbus County social services department.
