WARD, Ark. — An Arkansas police department has canceled a missing/endangered child advisory after a four-year-old girl that was taken from her home was found safe.

According to the Ward Police Department, Kensley Yeatman was staying with her grandmother, who has temporary guardianship of the child, when the little girl’s mother, Stephanie Torres, took her by force on Sunday, July 7.
