Amber Alert Canceled: NC Girl Found Near Home

WILMINGTON, NC -- Wilmington Police have found the 6-year-old girl that was abducted Wednesday night.

Thursday morning, authorities were searching for Stefanny Lenneth Lopez-Castro along River Road. A witness involved in the rescue said she was found chained to a tree in a wooded area.

The man said he was flagged down on River Road while driving to work. Authorities asked if he had any bolt cutters, but he didn't have any. The witness gave authorities a battery-operated saw and they went into the woods to cut the girl free. A tweet from the New Hanover Sheriff's Office says Lopez-Castro is in good condition at the hospital.
