BARTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say a 2-year-old girl has been found safe about 24 hours by searchers after she wandered away from her home in a heavily wooded area of western Michigan.

An alert was issued Tuesday for Amber Smith, and police and volunteers searched through the night for her near her home in Newaygo County's Barton Township. It's close to Manistee National Forest and about 55 miles north of Grand Rapids.

She was found by a searcher with the state Department of Natural Resources.

Amber was taken to Mecosta County Medical Center to be checked for what appeared to be minor scrapes and bruises.
