Amber Alert canceled, girl found alive

FRESNO, Calif.

Christina Almanza, 17, was found alive in Vallejo at a home on Bolton Way Friday afternoon and will be returned to her family later today.

Two people are in custody in connection with her disappearance.

Almanza disappeared Wednesday evening after leaving home for a night school in Fairfield. Thursday afternoon, a voicemail suggested Almanza was being held against her will. A flurry of text messages followed the voicemail, including one that suggested she was being held either in a field or a basement with several other females.

Almanza was found at a home along Bolton Way Friday afternoon. A pit bull that attempted to take on one officer was shot.
