A suspect is in custody after an 8-year-old girl was kidnapped while walking with her mother in Texas and later found safe hours later, authorities said early Sunday.

The identity of the 51-year-old suspect has not yet been released.

Police issued an Amber Alert for Salem and posted her photos and pictures of the vehicle to social media.

Police went into the hotel, breached a door and found Salem inside. And the smiles on the faces of adults of the Fort Worth neighborhood where, 24 hours earlier, panic reigned.
