A statewide Amber Alert for a 13-year-old Texas girl who was believed to be with a 19-year-old man and thought to be “in grave or immediate danger” was canceled Wednesday afternoon.

Betsabe Perez was last seen at noon on Sept. 9 in Del Rio, according to the alert issued Monday.

On Wednesday morning she and the man she was believed to be with, Erik Diaz-Tapia, were tracked to an apartment complex in the Fort Worth area with the help of an IP address from a cellphone, Val Verde County Sheriff Joe Frank Martinez said.

She was found safe and Diaz-Tapia was arrested.
