An Amber Alert was issued Tuesday afternoon for a Washington state 14-month-old who was believed to have been taken by her father, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Within half an hour, the Washington State Patrol tweeted that the girl had been found and was safe.

Aleionna Wilson was taken Dec. 16 from a Kent, Wash., daycare by Aleiondro Wilson, who is believed to be on his way to Texas, authorities say. The child previously had been last seen in North Powder, Ore., according to the Amber Alert.

Authorities had warned that Aleiondro Wilson might be armed and had “made suicidal statements.”
