FRESNO (CBS SF) — A 3-year-old girl who was abducted in Fresno County on Sunday night, triggering a statewide Amber Alert, was found safe this morning by the county sheriff’s department.

Tanya Ruiz is alive and is being evaluated by doctors, according to Lt. Rick Ko of the Fresno County Sheriff’s Department. Her family is with her, Ko said.

Tanya was the subject of an Amber Alert after she was taken from the city of Huron at approximately 7:45 p.m. Sunday.

Sheriff’s deputies found her at 8:12 a.m. today in a Huron field, Ko said.

Police are still searching for Tanya’s suspected abductor, who was described as a Hispanic man around 30 years old with long hair and was last seen wearing a red shirt and red hat.
