    Police have canceled an Amber Alert issued early Monday morning for a 1-month-old baby girl from Torrington after she and her mother were found at a relative's home in Arizona.

    Police have canceled an Amber Alert issued early Monday morning for a 1-month-old baby girl from Torrington.

    The alert was canceled around 4:15 p.m. Monday. Police said the infant, Shiloh Gilber-Alfar, and her mother, 30-year-old Amirah Alfar, were found in Prescott Valley, Arizona, at the home of a family member.

    Shiloh was found unharmed and was placed in the care of the Arizona Department of Children Services, according to police. She was taken to a local hospital for an evaluation.

    The Department of Children and Families has an order to remove the baby from Amirah Alfar's custody, but the mother and daughter were gone when DCF went to serve the order, according to Torrington Police.

    The two were missing since Saturday.

    Details regarding the order for custody removal from the mother have not been released.

    A woman at Alfar’s home, who claimed to be Shiloh’s grandmother, said she had no idea where her daughter or the baby were. 

    The FBI child abduction unit, the state police child abduction unit and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were called to help find the child.

    Shiloh Gilbert-Alfar weighs 7 pounds and is 24 inches long. Amirah Alfar has brown hair, brown eyes and is 5 feet tall.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Torrington police at 860-489-2090.
