Shortly after 7 p.m. the Texas Department of Public Safety discontinued the alert and said the child had been found.

McKinney police spokesman Chad Barker said Isabella was safe and in the custody of Child Protective Services after being recovered near the Mexico border in Laredo, Texas, 430 miles from where she had been taken.

Alcocer was in custody and was being questioned.
