BERWICK, Pa. - State police say an Amber Alert for a 2-year-old Pennsylvania girl turned out to be a false alarm.
Two-year-old Alexis Weber's family reported she had been abducted from their Berwick home about 7 p.m. Sunday and that her mother's car, a 2005 yellow Ford Mustang might have been stolen in the process.
But police say they found that the girl was in the car, which somehow rolled down a driveway and into a wooded area. Police believe the girl's mother may have forgotten to put the vehicle in "park".
The Amber Alert was canceled early Monday.
The toddler was taken for a medical evaluation.
Berwick is in Columbia County, about 45 miles southwest of Scranton.
