Ontario Provincial Police have cancelled an Amber Alert for a three-year-old girl who was last seen in Barrie on Monday after officials say she was found safe.

In the initial news release issued by the Barrie Police Service, officers said the girl was last seen at approximately 2:15 p.m. on Monday and that she was seen with a man.

The OPP issued the provincewide alert just before 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday and three hours later the girl was reported by officers to have been found.

It wasn’t disclosed exactly how the girl was found, but a Barrie police statement Tuesday morning said the girl was located in Guelph and officers went there to pick her up.

A Guelph police spokesperson told Global News the girl appeared to be in good health. The representative said the incident appeared to be connected to “an ongoing family dispute.”
