Burnet police have found the 11-year-old runaway Helen May Marie Pierce who left with an unknown man on Monday.

"We are pleased to announce Helen May Marie Pierce has been located and is safely in the custody of law enforcement," said the city of Burnet on their Facebook page.

The department had been working in conjunction with other law enforcement agencies in the state to locate the child who reportedly left her home willingly with an unknown male in a gray 4-door sedan.

The Amber Alert was issued due to the age of the child and the circumstances surrounding this case, police said. The Amber Alert has now been canceled.
