FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) - An Amber Alert has been canceled after a mother and her 8-year-old daughter were found safe in Kentucky Wednesday.
8-year-old Sophia Snow and her mother, Jennifer Ansari were found where Fishers Police thought they would be in Louisville. Nearly 24 hours after police issued that Amber Alert, investigators said the girl's mother surrendered to police.
"Our sole intent is to have the child returned quickly and safely to Indiana," said Fishers Police Officer Tom Weger.
That will happen soon now that Snow has been found safe in Louisville. Fishers detectives are in Kentucky to bring the child back.
Police said she was with her mother, Ansari who left the area when she found out her ex-boyfriend was getting custody.
"We have been working very closely with everybody involved in this case since Friday," Officer Weger said.
It was four days later when Fishers and Indiana State Police issued a State Wide Amber Alert fearing for the 8-year-old's safety. Officer Weger said they waited until Tuesday because that's the day Ansari was supposed to surrender Snow to her father.
Ansari's father, who lives in Louisville, talked about the Indiana Amber Alert. He said his granddaughter belongs to her mother.
"I don't know what to do. It's like you're in a rock and a hard place. If you tell her to turn herself in, they're going to take the child away and send her straight to Florida," said Raymond Wagner, Jennifer’s father.
Wagner said he didn't know where his daughter had gone with Snow.
Fishers police said Ansari is now in the custody of the Louisville police department. She will be brought back to Hamilton County sometime this week to face charges.
