A six-year-old Saskatchewan girl, Emma O'Keeffe has been found after the vehicle she was in was stolen from a strip mall in North Battleford, Saskatchewan last evening. 

Police have called off the Amber Alert after she was found safe in North Battleford, the town she went missing from, early this morning and is now receiving medical treatment. 

Emma had been left in the car, which was still running when her mother quickly went into a local strip mall. The car was then stolen from the strip mall parking lot. It is believed that Emma was accidentally taken as whoever stole the car didn't realize there was a child in the back seat. 

Saskatchewan Police originally issued the amber alert last night and later extended it to include Alberta and Manitoba as they weren't sure how far the suspect might have travelled. 

Prior to her return, Emma's parents released an emotional video on Facebook begging for their daughter back and stating that the girl's life would be in danger if she didn't receive her medications. She has both epilepsy and autism, meaning missing one dose could cause a major seizure.
