    Amber Alert Canceled for 3-Year-Old Girl Abducted in East Harlem: Police

    The Amber Alert issued for a 3-year-old girl police said was abducted from a mental health clinic in Manhattan by a suicidal man Tuesday has been canceled, authorities say. 

    There was no immediate update on the condition of the girl. The alert was canceled about 45 minutes after it was issued.

    The NYPD had said the child, who may have Down syndrome, is possibly related to the suspect.

    They identified the suspect as Patrick Giblin, saying he took the girl from a facility on East 102nd Street in Harlem around noon and was seen driving on the Brooklyn Bridge in a black SUV Dodge Durango. 

    Authorities said Giblin suffers from post traumatic stress disorder and is considered suicidal.
