A 2-year-old girl who was taken by her mother who does not have custody has been found safe, the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office said Monday.

Makenzie Privitt was taken by her mother, Shelby Privitt, from her grandmother's home, the sheriff's office said late Monday morning. The grandmother holds custody of Makenzie, who's not supposed to be with her mother.

Hours later, the sheriff's office said both Makenzie and Shelby had been located and Makenzie was safe.

"A very heartfelt thank you to the citizens of this county that called in with helpful information that resulted in the pair being located," the sheriff's office said in a statement.
