The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation canceled an AMBER ALERT for a 2-year-old out of Pascagoula in Jackson County, Mississippi. Her father is in custody.

The little girl was found Tuesday night after last being seen about 5:15 p.m. at Bandywood Apartments in Pascagoula with her father, Joe Quincy McCord. Pascagoula Police say McCord was suspected of shooting someone at the apartments before taking off with the girl.

Alabama authorities tell the Mississippi Department of Safety that McCord turned himself in to law enforcement in Mobile Tuesday night. They said the girl was found safe a short time later.
