NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A 10-year-old girl has been found safe after police said she was abducted by her non-custodial parents from her school on the Lower East Side.
Police canceled an AMBER Alert for Celine Melanie Hicks around 2 p.m. Thursday. It’s unclear where the girl was found, but her mother, 40-year-old Jacqueline Hendricks, was taken into custody.
No other details are known.
The alert was issued earlier Thursday after police said Celine was picked up by her mother, who does not have custody, around 1 p.m. Wednesday at Castle Middle School on Henry Street. The girl currently lives with another family member, police said.
