MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The City Watch Alert for 12-year-old Mackenzie Thomas who was reported missing Monday evening has been canceled.

Police didn’t release any additional information, but we do know police became involved after she got into an argument with her mother and jumped out of the car when it stopped at Yorkshire Drive and Hinton Avenue. She ran away and hadn’t been seen or heard from since then, which was around 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Mackenzie has autism and was considered endangered, according to the alert.
