An Amber Alert has been canceled for a missing 9-year-old Broward girl after she was found safe, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Twitter account.
She was last seen leaving a church with her biological mother who does not have custody of the girl, according to the Hallandale Beach Police Department.
Moments after the Amber Alert was issued, the Hallandale Beach Police Department announced on social media that they had received a credible tip saying Brianna and her mother had been seen several hours prior at the TriRail Station at Hollywood Blvd and Interstate 95.
At about 2 p.m. Saturday, Brianna was at church with her grandmother in the 800 block of N.W. 1st Avenue in Hallandale Beach when the girl’s mother, Daurianne Gordon Brown, arrived and began to chat with her. Police say that Brianna and her mother were seen several minutes later walking from the church and leaving in a white Toyota Camry.
Brown, who has had substance abuse issues, had turned off her cell phone, police said. The girl’s grandmother thinks Brown is upset over losing custody of her daughter.
