Amber Alert Canceled After Tulsa Girl Found Safe

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa police say an 8-year-old girl who was apparently abducted while playing on a swing set has been found safe and the suspect is in custody.

Police spokeswoman Jillian Roberson says Montserrat Aguirre was playing outside a Tulsa apartment at about 7:20 p.m. Sunday when a small white car pulled up and a white man got out, grabbed her and put her in the car before driving away.

At about 11:15 p.m. Sunday, a caller reported a suspicious man who went into a Dollar General store to buy clothing for a young girl. Police used that information to narrow their search and found the suspected kidnapper early Monday about 20 miles away in Sapulpa.

Police say the girl was found safe and is being reunited with her family.
