Police have canceled an Amber Alert for a missing 10-year-old from New York City.



News 12 Long Island has learned Celine Hicks has been found and is safe.



Police said Hicks was abducted Wednesday around 1 p.m. from her biological mother, Jacqueline Hendricks.



Officials said that Hendricks doesn't have custody of her and wasn't safe when with her mother.
