TURTLEFORD, Sask. - The RCMP have cancelled an Amber Alert in Saskatchewan for twin 10-year-old girls.

Police say Caitlyn and Carrley Blythe were found safe at a hotel in Carlyle about an hour after the Amber Alert was issued on Wednesday afternoon.

Their mother, 49-year-old Beverly Blythe, was with them.

The twins were last seen Tuesday morning at their home in Paradise Hill — about 740 kilometres northwest of where they were found.

Police say Blythe was being assessed by a physician in Carlyle. Mounties said she has a medical condition, but wouldn’t elaborate.

RCMP can’t say at this time whether she’ll face any charges.

The girls were headed home to be with their biological father.

"When the members went to the hotel, (they) spoke to the mother and everybody was OK, and taken into custody without incident,” said RCMP Sgt. Rob Cozine.

An Amber Alert is issued when police have been notified about a child or vulnerable adult believed to be at risk of serious harm or death.
