UPSHUR COUNTY (WVVA)- The Amber Alert for 16-year-old Shaina Nicole Tenney and her 7-Month-Old daughter Grace Hope Tenney has been canceled.

According to a report from NBC affiliate WSAZ, the Kanawha County Dispatcher says they were found Wednesday morning. The West Virginia State police canceled the alert around 9:30 in the morning after they were found.

Police believed they were in "extreme danger" and that the two were allegedly abducted by family member Margel F. Tenney.

All three were found alongside Interstate 79 in Lewis County, WSAZ reports.

UPSHUR COUNTY (WVVA) - An Amber Alert issued for two West Virginia girls has been extended to Ohio, according to the website of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

A suspect vehicle, possibly carrying 16-year-old Shaina Nicole Tenney and her 7-month-old daughter Grace Hope Tenney, was possibly seen crossing into Ohio on Interstate 77 around 9 p.m.

The NCMEC website further states in the updated Amber Alert that the suspect, Margel F. Tenney, is being investigated for sexual abuse against the teen.

There is conflicting information on the NCMEC website regarding the color of the vehicle in question. The Ohio Amber Alert lists the suspect vehicle as a red Ford Taurus, while the previously-issued West Virginia Amber Alert lists the vehicle color as beige.

Both alerts state the vehicle's West Virginia plate number is 2LW179.

Previous reports indicated the suspect and victims may have been headed south to Texas.
