IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -- Authorities have canceled an AMBER Alert issued on Friday.

According to the latest information provided by the state of Idaho: "Information from various sources indicate Aaliyah is no longer in Idaho."

Police say 5-year-old Aaliyah Alynn Esqueda is with her father in Mexico.
They say detectives are working with other agencies to bring the girl back to Idaho.

The alert was issued last Friday for 5-year-old Aaliyah Alynn Esqueda, after police received information from the girl's legal guardians that her paternal grandparents were taking her to Mexico.

Detectives say Debra and Scott Yagues have legal guardianship of their grand daughter, Aaliyah Esqueda. Debra and Scott allowed visitation of Aaliyah to her father's parents, Irene and Salvador Esqueda on last Tuesday. 

Aaliyah is supposed to be returned to the Yagues this past Sunday. A facebook message was sent from a relative of the Esquedas saying Irene and Salvador were taking Aaliyah to her father in Mexico. 

Idaho Falls police were made aware of the incident around 2:45pm Friday. It's believed that Irene, Salvador, and Aaliyah left Idaho Falls last Thursday around 11pm on a bus headed for Mexico. 

Aaliyah is Hispanic with brown hair and brown eyes. She is 3 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs about 50 pounds.

The first suspect is believed to be 71-year-old Irene Ma Esqueda. Esqueda is also Hispanic and has brown hair and brown eyes. She is 5 foot, 4 inches tall and weighs about 178 pounds.

The second suspect is 74-year-old Salvador Esqueda. He is Hispanic with gray hair and brown eyes. He is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds.
