Amber Alert canceled: 7-month-old baby found safe, father arrested

DANVILLE, Virginia -- Danville Police say that 7-month-old Emma Kennedy has been found safe and her father has been arrested after an Amber Alert was issued on Monday.

Officers confirmed a previous report of a man trying to sell a baby in Durham was "not a credible lead" and deemed it unrelated.

An Amber Alert was issued for Emma Kennedy Monday morning after police said her father assaulted her mother at a Virginia gas station.

Kennedy allegedly then took the child and fled in a gold Suzuki with NC license tag number EKZ-5093.
