BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 5-year-old girl who was the subject of an Amber Alert has been found safe.
Police say 21 year old Rique' R. Griffin took the girl early Thursday, after he got into a fight with the child's mother. Griffin was driving down Morgantown Road, when he allegedly assaulted the mother. She got away and called 911, but Griffin allegedly drove off with the child in the car.
Bowling Green Police thought Griffin may have been headed to Louisville, Kentucky or Atlanta, Georgia.
There's no word yet on where the child was found or if Griffin was with her.
