CINCINNATI -- An Amber Alert has been canceled in Kentucky for a missing 2-year-old last seen in Shepherdsville, Ky. Tuesday.
Authorities said Jaylynn Maxey was taken by her non-custodial father Joshua Yaeger and was believed to be in danger.
Officials said Yaeger was heading in an unknown direction in a 2000 maroon Ford Taurus but possibly has family in Indiana.
Police say Maxey was found at about 12:15 a.m. on I-65 near Upton, Ky. and Yaeger was arrested without incident.
An abandoned car Yeager had previously stolen at a Circle K was found Tuesday night, according to officers.
Investigators say Yeager is also the suspect in a Shepherdsville bank robbery that occurred Monday.
Maxey was taken to Hardin Memorial Hospital but officials have not said whether it's due to injuries sustained or for observation.
No further details have been released at this time.
