EASLEY, S.C. -- An Amber Alert that was issued for two toddlers from Pickens County, S.C. has been canceled.

Police issued the alert for 2-year-old Alexis London Marie Manley and 13-month-old Kynadi Leigh Grace Manley Wednesday morning after their caregiver called in a kidnapping.

The caregiver told police that the girls had been taken by their mother.

Wednesday evening police canceled the alert and announced it had been a hoax.

Charges are pending against the woman who called in the false report.
