SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (WDHN) — The missing Kentucky girl possibly seen at The National Peanut Festival has been found safe and sound in California.

Amber (Amberlyn) Clare, 16, and her three-year-old cousin, Noah Clare, were found in San Clemente, California on Thursday. Jacob Clare, the uncle of Amber and father of Noah has been taken into police custody.

This missing child search came after Jacob Clare allegedly left Kentucky with Amber and Noah, but never arrived at their location in Kentucky around November 5-6. Noah was then seen in Tennesse, where Tennesee officials posted an AMBER alert.

The group then traveled to California where Jacob Clare’s Subaru was found abandoned.
