Ottawa police say a baby girl who was the subject of an amber alert has been found safe.

Ottawa police Insp. Mike Maloney says officers found the one-year-old girl with her father in a vehicle in Gatineau, Que., around 2 p.m. today.

Police had issued an amber alert moments earlier, saying the baby was abducted Sunday night by her father and her safety could be at risk.
