LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

An Amber Alert that was issued for a 5-year-old Fallon girl Friday was canceled after she was found safe, according to authorities.

Fallon police said 31-year-old Rebecca Smart, who has a history of mental problems, told friends Thursday night that the end of the world is near, and that she and her daughter, Rachel, were going to New York to meet Jehovah.

Police said the pair was found safe in Schurz after an elderly couple spotted the mother acting strangely at a post office and called police.

Both were taken to a local hospital to be evaluated.
