Youngstown Police Department is looking for a 2008 dark blue Volvo that is believed to be involved in a missing child case

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – An AMBER Alert has been canceled for a Youngstown girl who police said was taken by her father.

Police were looking for one-year-old Nova Sheridan on Friday morning who was believed to be with her father, 23-year-old Kahlil Lamonte Sheridan.

Police say Sheridan broke into the home of the child’s mother on Moherman Avenue Thursday night and took the baby.

The Amber Alert was canceled just before noon Friday, after police say the girl was found safe at a house in Liberty.

Police said Sheridan apparently took the child to a residential group home in Liberty where his mother works, and she then called police.

No arrests have been made yet; police were looking for Sheridan on Friday afternoon.

Several agencies are investigating, including the local FBI, Youngstown and Liberty police departments and Ohio’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
