    A young girl was found safe after Pennsylvania State Police issued an Amber Alert Sunday night.

    The 2-year-old's mother reported her missing from in front of their home on W Front Street in Berwick, Columbia County, Pennsylvania around 7 p.m., said Pennsylvania State Police.

    Police said the girl she was inside a 2005 yellow Ford Convertible Mustang. After searching the area for about five hours, police found the car down a hill and in a wooded area near the family home, said troopers from the Bloomsburg barracks.

    The girl was unharmed but was checked out by doctors as a precaution, said NBC affiliate WBRE.

    Investigators found the girl's mother accidentally left the car in gear and the car wound up rolling down the hill by their home, said WBRE.
