Authorities canceled an AMBER Alert for a 2-month-old girl who police said was taken Wednesday morning from an address in the village of Holley in Orleans County, and are now looking for the teenage parents of the infant.
The child was recovered safely at the residence of extended family in Auburn, according to a statement released by Orleans County Undersheriff Michael C. Mele.
The infant was then placed into the care and custody of Orleans County Child and Family Services, Mele said.
The alert was issued at about 2:20 p.m. After it was learned that the baby was left at the residence of extended family in Auburn, the alert was canceled at about 3:30 p.m.
The sheriff's office was looking for the parents, described as a 16-year-old male and a 15-year-old female, who were reported to have fled on foot.
The infant was taken in an incident described as a "child abduction" at an address on North Manning Road at about 8 a.m. The infant was taken in a car seat with a pink cover, police said.
The sheriff's office asked anyone with information regarding the parents' whereabouts to call 1 (585) 589-5527.
