TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The Latest on the search for an Oklahoma woman who police say stabbed one child and fled with another (all times local):

12:45 p.m.

Tulsa police say they've taken into custody a woman who bound and gagged her three daughters, stabbed the eldest repeatedly, and set their house on fire.

Police said Tuesday that a 7-year-old girl who was reported missing has been found safe.

Authorities say a patrol officer located 39-year-old Taheerah Ahmad in her vehicle in downtown Tulsa, and she was taken into custody without incident.

Authorities had been searching for Ahmad since Monday night, when officers found her house on fire and her 11-year-old daughter suffering from multiple stab wounds.

Police say the 11-year-old girl is in "very severe condition" in a Tulsa hospital.

Police in Oklahoma are searching for a woman who they say bound and gagged her three daughters, stabbed the eldest repeatedly, and set their house on fire.

A 7-year-old girl is missing along with the mother, identified by Tulsa police as 39-year-old Taheerah Ahmad.

Tulsa Police Officer Jeanne MacKenzie says the 7-year-old girl, Hafsa Hayle, helped her 9-year-old sister escape, and the 9-year-old ran to a nearby house for help. MacKenzie tells the Tulsa World that when authorities arrived, they found an 11-year-old girl in critical condition with stab wounds and the house on fire.

Police believe Ahmad fled with the youngest girl.

An Amber Alert says Ahmad may be driving a black Lexus RX300 SUV with paper tags, a 2011 Ford Escape or a navy blue Ford sedan.
