Amber Alert Canceled, Girl From Charlotte Found Safe in DC

Amber Alert Canceled

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police have canceled an Amber Alert after finding a missing girl.

Police say 11-year-old Arieyana Forney is safe and with authorities. She was found in Washington, D.C. 

Police say Forney called 911 from the car and told officers she had been kidnapped.

Police say she was kidnapped by her uncle. 

The Amber Alert was issued Sunday afternoon after authorities discovered her missing from a house on Glenncannon Drive. Police responded to the house around 11 Sunday morning. There, they found a male and female dead inside the home.

The identities of the two victims have not been released pending family notification. Police say the victims are Forney's grandparents. 

A white Chevy Impala was seen leaving the scene just before the Charlotte Fire Department arrived.

Detectives with the Homicide/ADW Unit are canvassing the area to determine whether there are any witnesses to this incident.

The investigation comes just a day after police began looking into Charlotte's 23rd homicide on Saturday, making this the 24th homicide in just four months.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a Homicide Unit Detective.
