    A missing 3-year-old Maine girl has been found safe and an Amber Alert for her has been cancelled, according to necn affiliate WCSH.

    Police were searching Tuesday for Lenore "Lenny" Wilson, who went missing from Augusta.

    The girl was believed to be in the company of an adult, 26-year-old Fatima L. Gissentaner, who told Augusta police she would bring Lenore to the department, but did not do so.

    The girl was brought to the police station, but not by Gissentaner, who goes by the nickname "China."

    Gissentaner was also thought to be in the company of her boyfriend, who goes by the street name of "Dollar," according to state police.

    It's unclear if the couple, both from New York, had access to a vehicle.

    Gissentaner is described as having a slender build. Police say she occasionally cares for the child.

    According to police, the Augusta Fire Department responded to 26 Sewall St. around 7 a.m. for a report of a medical emergency. Once at the scene, they discovered that Lenore was not at the residence, where she was supposed to be.

    Police said that all available patrol units, fire units, state police and Kennebec County Sheriff’s deputies responded to do a search of the immediate area while detectives began interviewing witnesses.

    Earlier, police said they suspect that Lenore is with a male and female who were at the apartment of the medical emergency, later identified as Gissentaner and possibly her boyfriend.

    Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Augusta Police Department at 207-620-8383.
