GROVE, Okla. (AP)--Authorities in Oklahoma have cancelled an Amber Alert for an 8-month-old baby who went missing as Department of Human Services workers were preparing to take the girl into emergency custody.

An unknown person or persons dropped Carolinn Altaffer off at Grove Hospital Friday morning where she is currently receiving medical treatment, according to Tulsa CBS affiliate newson6.com.

Authorities issued an Amber Alert early Friday for Carolinn. The Delaware County Sheriff's Office says investigators believe the girl's parents took the child and say they may have been headed to Kansas.

According to the Amber Alert, Carolinn is ``extremely malnourished'' and requires immediate medical treatment.

It is believed she was taken by her parents, Ronald and China Altaffer, but their whereabouts are unknown.

A signal from their cell phone was picked up shortly after 6 a.m. Friday between Claremore and Adair, Oklahoma.

Authorities are searching for a tan 2003 Chevrolet pickup with the Oklahoma license plate of 474-HLD.
