— An 5-month-old infant and her biological mother, both from Monroe, were found safely after authorities issued an Amber Alert on Sunday morning.

Tracie Jenell Deloria Robinson, 21, and her daughter, T'leah Janiye Robinson, were located in Monroe by around 1:30 p.m., prompting authorities to cancel the Amber Alert. Authorities did not release any more details about how they were found.

Earlier, law enforcement officials said they believed T'leah had been abducted by Robinson, who does not have custody of the girl. T'leah went missing from her home between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. on Sunday.

Authorities said no decision had been made as to whether or not any charges will be filed and that the case was still under investigation.

Monroe police officers said that Robinson is cognitively impaired and her mother, Phylis Covington, is T'leah's legal guardian. The three live together at a home in Monroe in Union County, near Charlotte.
