PELHAM, AL - Authorities in Alabama say they've found a 13-year-old girl who disappeared on her way to school.

Amberly Nicole Flores left her home in Pelham, Alabama on Tuesday morning to walk to the school bus stop. But authorities with the Pelham Police Department were alerted when she didn't show up at school that day and an emergency missing child alert was issued in behalf of Amberly.

The girl's parents said it was out of character for their daughter to not show up to school.

"She's very good, a very good girl," her father, Alfredo Flores, told Birmingham ABC affiliate WBMA-LD. "This is the first time she go to school and not come back."

On Thursday afternoon, Pelham police said they had found Amberly safe at a home in Huntsville, in northern Alabama, about two hours north of Pelham.

Surveillance video from the area she went missing showed her "willingly" get into a dark Mercedes SUV, police said.
