An Amber Alert has been canceled after 2-year old Maliah Harris was found safe in Georgia. Her 7-month-old sibling, Alyssa, was found dead and Maliah disappeared from a Mississippi home which prompted authorities to issue the alert. The girls parents, Donald Boyd Harris,34, and Allison Studdard, 31, are now in custody.
Georgia Police Sgt. Dean King, said the couple's car was spotted traveling eastbound on Highway 821 around midnight. Police stopped the car and reportedly found Maliah and her father inside. She is said to be in good health.
Lowndes County (Mississippi) Chief Deputy Marc Miley says the siblings' grandfather discovered Alyssa's body inside the family's home about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday. Miley says the grandfather called 911, and while he was on the phone, the parents left with the 2-year-old girl. Police say meth and ice were found in the home.
