Authorities in Maryland say an 11-year-old girl missing since Thursday night has been located in South Carolina and appears to be unharmed.

The Baltimore County Twitter account shows both Caitlyn Marie Virts and her father, Timothy Howard Virts, have been found. 

An Amber Alert for the 11-year-old was issued in West Virginia because her father has ties to McDowell County, where Save-A-Lot grocery store in Welch says he worked. 

Caitlyn Marie Virts was last seen in Dunalk, Maryland and was believed to be in extreme danger after a likely abduction by her father. There is currently a warrant out for Timothy Howard Virts for the murder of Bobbie Jo Cortez.
