GREENSBORO, N.C. (WMBF) – Greensboro police announced Thursday night that a 3-year-old girl who was the center of an Amber Alert has been found alive and well.

Ahlora Ashanti-Sample Lindiment was taken from a playground on Phillips Avenue in Greensboro on Wednesday. An Amber Alert was issued shortly thereafter.

Police said in a news conference that they received a tip call from a woman stating that she was at Words of Faith Christian Center and located a small child that she believed to be Ahlora. Officers responded and took the child to a local hospital.
