LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Authorities say a missing 12-year-old Arkansas girl has been found alive, along with the man suspected of abducting her and killing her adoptive parents.

Little Rock police spokeswoman Sgt. Cassandra Davis said Saturday that police officers in Memphis, Tenn., found 33-year-old Antonio Whitlow and his parents' adopted daughter, 12-year-old Amber Whitlow.

She says both Amber and Antonio Whitlow were in police custody in Memphis.

Davis says Amber showed no signs of injuries.

Davis said Antonio Whitlow was wanted on two counts of capital murder in connection with the slayings of his 65-year-old parents, Annette and Bobby Whitlow.

Davis says the elder Whitlows were found dead in their Little Rock home on Saturday. She wouldn't say how they died.

An Amber Alert issued for Amber Whitlow has been canceled.
