— BUTLER — Authorities say a 10-year-old girl who was abducted from her home in Pennsylvania has been found safe in upstate New York and that her alleged abductor is in custody.

An Amber Alert issued Thursday afternoon for Alexandria Jade Long of Gordon has been canceled. Police say 39-year-old Peter Tarbox has been taken into custody in the town of Gouverneur in St. Lawrence County, N.Y. It was not known if he had a lawyer.

Police say Tarbox is a former acquaintance of the girl’s mother and was a stranger to the child.
