STILLWATER, Oklahoma -- Authorities have canceled an Amber Alert for a missing Stillwater girl.

The girl was not abducted, instead she ran away, troopers said. She was found late Wednesday afternoon in Oklahoma City with a friend.

Stillwater police had issued the alert for said 12-year-old Mycah Michelle James around noon, claiming the child had been forced into a car by a while male.  Officers say they later learned that the Mycah had convinced her younger sister to fabricate the kidnapping story to cover for her so she could run away.

Mycah has short, curly, reddish-brown hair and was last seen wearing blue and white shorts and a black and white "The Nightmare Before Christmas" T-shirt.
