Summerville, SC (WLTX) - An Amber Alert, issued earlier today for a missing Summerville girl, has been cancelled. And authorities say the child has been found safe.
Captain John Rogers, with the Summerville Police Department, says 2-year-old Haley Renae Briggs was located in Haywood County, N.C. this afternoon. Officers say she was with her non-custodial mother, Megan Marie Briggs. She is now in the custody of North Carolina social services.
Investigators say about 4:00 a.m. Briggs entered a Summerville residence, where Haley had been staying. They say Briggs took the child, along with a vehicle belonging to the homeowners and took off. The 19-year-old has reportedly been arrested.
Rogers says once Briggs is brought back to Summerville, she will face burglary, kidnapping and grand larceny charges.
