An Amber Alert for a 13-year-old girl from Cuero, Texas, was canceled a few hours after it was issued Friday.

According to the DeWitt County Sheriff’s Office, a girl named Phoebe was dropped off at a police station in Hondo, which is in Medina County near San Antonio.

The Latest News Headlines, Traffic and Weather:

Deputies said Phoebe had gone willingly with 34-year-old Eric Castillo. She lived with Castillo and his family at one point. She reportedly called him to pick her up, which he did.

According to deputies, they were concerned for Phoebe’s well-being because Castillo is a registered sex offender.

We’re told a chief deputy in DeWitt County had been in contact with Castillo, who had his father take the girl to the police station in Hondo.

Castillo was not in custody Friday, and deputies said the case would be referred to a grand jury.
