The mother of a 2-year-old girl who went missing in Wilton Manors on Sunday has been arrested after the child was safely located by authorities.

According to Wilton Manors Police, 29-year-old Christine Ammon was charged with violating a court order. Police found her with her daughter, Stella Victoria Turley, at around 1:40 p.m. in the 1000 block of northeast 17th Way in Fort Lauderdale.

An Amber Alert for Turley was issued earlier in the day.

Investigators say Ammon does not have custody of the child. She allegedly left with her daughter early Sunday morning after arriving at her place of residence.

Authorities say Turley was found in good health and has been reunited with her father.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, who canceled the Amber Alert, said the child was found safe but did not release any further information.
