An Amber Alert issued for an 8-year-old Stokes County girl was canceled Sunday night after she was found safe in Kentucky, officials said.

Trinity Lakin McGraw was found in Louisville, Ky., and her biological father, Patrick Ryan McGraw, was taken into custody, according to the Facebook page of the Stokes County Sheriff’s Office.

McGraw, who had no parental rights or custody, took the child from her legal guardian without consent, the sheriff’s office said.

It was not immediately clear what charges he was facing. The sheriff’s office said he has a history of drug abuse.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call the Stokes County Sheriff’s Office at 336-593-8139.
