Amber Alert canceled, Spokane Valley girl found safe

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Formerly missing Spokane Valley girl, Danika Packard, was found safe on Monday afternoon in Spokane.

Both Danika and her mother, Tracy Packard, 35, were located near 33rd and Fiske by Spokane Police officers.

Just after 3 p.m., a citizen noticed Tracy's Buick LeSabre and told authorities that Tracy and Danika were walking down the street.

Spokane Valley Sheriff's deputies were looking for Danika and Tracy since early Monday afternoon.

At 10:30 Monday morning, Danika's school notified her father that Tracy pulled the little girl from class. They told him that Tracy was acting odd, and was pulling the girl from school to "go be with the Lord."

Danika's father says Tracy has been acting unusual over the past few days and believed that the little girl was in danger.

Danika has been returned to her father. Tracy is being evaluated.
