State Police cancelled an Amber Alert issued on Tuesday after a missing 12-year-old girl has been found safe. Two teens are now facing charges.
Troopers say the investigation started Tuesday morning when state police received a report that 12-year-old McKenzie Wilson had gone missing in the town of Franklinville in Cattaraugus County.

Shortly after, troopers learned a truck had been stolen not far from the 16-year-old's home and the 16-year-old's father reported a gun was missing from the home.

Monette is also being charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Both Monette and the 16-year-old boy were arraigned in Town of Machias Court on Tuesday.
