A missing 3-year-old girl who police believed may have been endangered has been found safe.

Audrey Laferriere was found early Friday morning after authorities issued an Amber Alert for her, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Amber Alerts are issued for children considered endangered or abducted, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Laferriere was believed to be with her parents, 39-year-old Alex Laferriere and 37-year-old April Levesque, who were last seen in Van Buren on Thursday night, McCausland said earlier on Friday.

Additional information about the case wasn’t immediately available Friday morning, but McCausland said they would be released later in the day.
