ORMOND BEACH — Police have cancelled an Amber Alert after two Florida girls were found safe.

Ormond Beach police issued the alert for 7-year-old Allison and 9-year-old Angela Pastorino. The girls appeared to have been with their mother, 28-year-old Jennifer Peabody.

Family members said Peabody suffers from depression and said she was planning on killing herself and her daughters during a phone call with a relative.

Authorities cancelled the alert Monday and said they were interviewing the girls' mother.
