Amber Alert canceled as child, suspect located

Pennsylvania State Police say the Amber Alert issued for an abducted 10-year-old girl from Schuylkill County has been cancelled and the child has been safely located.

Authorities were searching for a man who they say abducted 10-year-old Alexandria Jade Long in Gordon, Pa.

An Amber Alert was issued Thursday for a green Saab last seen traveling north on I-81 near Syracuse. State police say the car was believed to be heading to Norwood, north of Potsdam in St. Lawrence County.

Police say the suspect, Peter Tarbox, also of Gordon, Pa., is a former acquaintance of the abducted girl's mother. They say he's a stranger to the child.

Tarbox has since been taken into custody. Details as to where Tarbox and the child were found was not immediately available.
