THE BRONX - A Connecticut father accused of abducting his 6-year-old daughter after fatally stabbing his wife and injuring her friend Friday was taken into custody by police in Pennsylvania Friday, according police. 

State police in New York lifted the Amber Alert shortly after 11:30 a.m. after reports that the father and daughter were no longer in the area. Pennsylvania state police tweeted that the suspect was taken into custody and the girl was recovered safely, but no further information has been released at this time.

Aylin Sofia Hernandez was reported missing after police say her father, Oscar Hernandez, fatally stabbed the girl's mother and injured her friend, according to police. 

The incident happened inside a home of Greenwood Drive in Bridgeport, Connecticut, around 3:30 a.m. Friday.

Police say the woman who was injured is in critical condition.

Hernandez was last seen driving a gray colored Hyundai Sonata with Connecticut plate AG91925. Officials say the man is an undocumented immigrant who was previously deported.

An earlier sighting turned up fruitless after police say their vehicle was spotted on Jennings Street in the Bronx Friday morning around 7 a.m. 

The girl is reportedly safe with police.
