Authorities in Alabama say they have found a 13-year-old girl, who disappeared on her way to school.

Amberly Nicole Flores left her home in Pelham, Alabama, on Tuesday morning to walk to the school bus stop. But she never made it to school, according to the Pelham Police Department.

On Thursday afternoon, Pelham police said they had found Amberly safe at a home in Huntsville, in northern Alabama, about two hours north of Pelham.

"Right now it's a feeling I've never felt in my life, to know that my daughter is alive," her mother, Heather Morrison, told Birmingham ABC affiliate WBMA. "It's something I'll never take for granted again."

Her mother said she was taken to the hospital and she was being interviewed by police.

It's still unclear the details of her disappearance.

Prior to her being found, the girl's parents said it was out of character for their daughter to not show up to school.

"She's very good, a very good girl," her father, Alfredo Flores, told WBMA. "This is the first time she go to school and not come back."

Amberly had last been seen wearing a white jacket with blue jeans and carrying a pink backpack near the Green Park South mobile home park.

Surveillance video from the area showed the girl "willingly" get into a dark Mercedes SUV, police said.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency on Wednesday issued an emergency missing child alert for Amberly.

Two police officers are shot after responding to sounds of gunfire during a protest. The shootings - one in Los Angeles and the other 2000 miles (3,200 kilometers) away in Louisville, Kentucky, less than two weeks later - are stark reminders of the dangers law enforcement officers face at a time when anger toward them in the wake of police killings of Black Americans, such as George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, has boiled over. "I think it's more than a suggestion that people are seeking to do harm to cops," Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown told reporters at a recent briefing.

The family of a Utah man who was shot at nearly 30 times and killed as he ran from police filed a lawsuit Friday against Salt Lake City and its police department. The family of Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal family allege the officers engaged in "gratuitous violence" by shooting at him between 27 and 29 times after he was already on the ground and incapacitated. "Despite the family's attempts to negotiate, it is apparent that the SLCPD and the Salt Lake City Mayor's Office (are) not interested in real reform," the family's attorneys wrote in a statement.

Salt Lake City's police dog apprehension program will remain suspended indefinitely after an internal audit done after a Black man was bitten found 27 dog bite incidents since 2018, the police chief said Friday. The audit results were announced weeks after body camera footage was released of an officer directing a dog to attack Jeffery Ryans, who had his hands in the air. Chief Mike Brown said 18 of the 27 incidents will be referred to the district attorney's office for further investigation as the department continues the audit to review any dog bite incidents within the past four years.
