A 6-year-old girl who was last seen Wednesday getting on a school bus to go home in Massachusetts and police said may have been abducted by her mother was found today in North Carolina.

Alize Whipple, 6, was found in Shelby, N.C., today along with her mother Leeanna Wilson.

Wilson, 50, did not have custody of the girl, and was taken into custody when she was found.

An Amber Alert had been issued for Alize Whipple, 6, who was last seen Wednesday in Fitchburg, Mass., getting on the school bus to go home.

Amber Alert Issued for Day-Old Baby Girl

Police issued the Amber Alert after the Department of Social Services went to court Friday to legally take custody of the girl, according to the Fitchburg Police Department. They would not comment on why social services took legal custody of the girl.

"There is reason to believe Leeanna may cause harm to the child," the Amber Alert announcement said.

On Friday night, after the Amber Alert was issued by state police a blue Buick sedan, which is believed to have been the car Wilson was driving, was found in Leominster, Mass., only a few miles from Fitchburg.

Alize's aunt, Debbie Jackson. told ABC affiliate WCVB-TV in Boston that she doubts Wilson would harm Alize, but she was concerned for their well-being.

"Come on home, come on home because we are worried about both of your guys' safety," Jackson said.
