An Amber Alert was canceled in New Mexico Monday after a baby was found safe.
The baby, 8-month-old Ariana Smith, was in a car when it was stolen.
The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office said Leighraughnzo Benally stole a maroon, Acura sedan, with Arizona license plate BEX719.
He has not yet been found.
