Officials in Van Zandt County have canceled the Amber Alert for 14-year-old Willow Sirmans.

The FBI Dallas Field Office arranged for Willow’s mother to fly to Kentucky to reunite with her daughter, according to the sheriff's office said.

Walker, 21, was being held in the Oldham County Detention Center in Kentucky. Odum was also taken into custody.

In a written statement, Van Zandt County Sheriff Dale Corbett thanked everyone who called in a tip and every member of law enforcement who helped bring Willow home. More than 15 agencies were involved in the search.
