CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — Police have canceled an Amber Alert for a six-month-old baby, who was reportedly abducted by her biological mother, after locating the infant.

Cleveland Heights Police issued an Amber Alert for 6-month-old Emery Seals after she was allegedly abducted by her 26-year-old mother, Alexis Barnes, from an apartment on the 2600 block of Noble Road in Cleveland Heights around 7 a.m. Saturday.

Police said Seals was removed from Barnes’ care in July due to a mental condition that impacts Barnes’ ability to take care of the baby.

As of 10:45 p.m. Saturday, police said they have located Seals and Barnes in Colleton County, South Carolina.

Seals was reportedly found unharmed and Barnes is in custody.
