Amber Alert

— The Amber Alert for a missing 1-year-old Greene County girl was canceled Friday morning after authorities say she was found unharmed in Mississippi.

It wasn't immediately clear if the alleged abductors, Christy Dubois and Rodney Wells, had been found along with infant Cathy Victoria Wells.

The alert for Cathy went out Thursday night after the infant was taken by her parents, Greene County Sheriff Lemmie Smith said.

He said that a judge terminate the couple's parental rights Monday and ordered the child to be turned over to social services. The parents did not obey that order and then disappeared.

Smith said he didn't know why the couple had lost custody of their child.

Both Wells and Dubois have criminal records in North Carolina. Wells has been convicted of selling drugs, while Dubois has larceny and trespassing convictions, according to state Department of Correction records.
