ALBANY, Ga. (AP) -- A Georgia mother of three children who went missing was arrested in Ocala, Florida, after an Amber Alert was issued and the body of a 2-year-old girl was found at her home.


 Media outlets report that 28-year-old Clarion Garrison was arrested Wednesday evening by the Marion County, Florida, Sheriff's Office.


The three children in the Amber Alert -- ages 7, 6 and 4 -- were all found with Garrison. The Florida Department of Children and Families took custody of the children.

Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards says that a 2-year-old girl was found dead at Garrison's Albany home, and had been dead for at least two days before the body was found. Investigators say the 2-year-old was Garrison's daughter.

It's unclear if Garrison has an attorney.
