COLUMBUS, GA (CNN) -  Police found a missing Georgia girl Sunday and arrested her alleged kidnapper.

Fabiola Morales, 13, was located at a residence in Jasper, Alabama, the Columbus, Georgia, Police Department said.

She was with Luis Garcia, 18, who had a previous kidnapping warrant, according to police.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation had issued Saturday an Amber Alert for Fabiola, who was allegedly abducted Thursday. Authorities had said the girl was believed to be in "extreme danger."

Authorities knew the car she may have been abducted in, and they tracked the pair down through phone searches and information gathering, said Detective Lance Deaton of the Columbus police.

Deaton said police will seek to have Garcia extradited to Georgia.
