    Late Tuesday night the Garland Police Department canceled an Amber Alert for a 2-year-old girl police believe may be in danger.

    Police said they found 2-year-old Maliyah Vergenz and she is okay and in good condition.

    Garland police also said they had her babysitter, Patricia Garcia, in custody.

    Garland police said Vergenz left home with her babysitter earlier Tuesday. They were concerned for Vargenz's safety because Garcia was distraught over the recent loss of a pregnancy and was refusing to return home with the little girl.

    Police said the pair were last seen in the 4900 block of Palo Alto Drive in Garland. Garland police said officers had phone contact with the babysitter earlier Tuesday but she stopped communication.

    Officers had been searching locations hoping to find her but have had no luck and turned to the public for help locating them.

    No word on how the pair were located Tuesday night.
