Amber Alert for Miami girl canceled

MIAMI, FL (WFLA) -

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement canceled an Amber Alert for a girl missing in Miami-Dade County.

She was found with her two parents in southwest Miami-Dade County, according to nbcmiami.com

Authorities had issued an Amber Alert after a driver saw what appeared to be a child in the trunk of a gray 2013 Chevy Impala, according to Miami-Dade Police.  No one had reported a child missing.

A witness said the car was seen heading south on Red Road when the trunk opened in the area of SW 58t Avenue and SW 40th Street. Another driver saw what appeared to be a little girl in the trunk, police told nbcmiami.com.

A man got out of the car to close the trunk, and he then turned left on Bird Road, heading east. The other driver was able to get the license tag.  The car was a rental and the agency said the renters were Hernan E. Daza-Noellino and Anna Rita Di Frances Cantonio, who police said were the girl's parents.

NBCmiami.com reports the father told police that his daughter lowered the back seat of the car to get a water bottle that had fallen into the trunk. At an intersection, the father got out of the car and opened the trunk to get the water bottle for her, police said. He then got into the car and continued eastbound on SW 40th Street.

The father and daughter were located at a store.
