JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A search has been called off for a missing 6-year-old girl and her father. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office announced early Friday morning that the pair had been found safe.

Officers said they responded Thursday night to Baymeadows Road East near Interstate 295 after the girl and her father were reported missing.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the two were said to have left their home at about 5 p.m.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued a Missing Child Alert about 11:55 p.m. It was canceled just after 2 a.m.

It is unclear where the pair was found.
