UPDATE 10:47 a.m. PT: Authorities say a 7-year-old girl who was the subject of an Amber Alert in Tulsa has been found safe and her mother is in custody.

Police in Oklahoma are searching for a woman who they say bound and gagged her three daughters, stabbed the eldest repeatedly, and then set their house on fire. When she was taken to a nearby hospital, the 11-year-old was in critical condition.

"The mother had duct-taped their hands, put socks in their mouths and began stabbing the 11-year-old", said Tulsa Police Officer Jeanne MacKenzie.

Police said one 9-year-old was able to escape the home and call 911, while Ahmad abducted Hafza.

The 9-year-old girl fled to a nearby residence, where some of her extended family live, and called for help.

"She has been taken into custody and the 7-year-old is with us", the Tulsa Police Department posted on Facebook.

DC Comics, creators of Superman , appreciated her for the role, that so many people came to identify her with, in the 70s and 80s. She was arrested at the White House in 2011 during a protest against the construction of an oil pipeline from Alberta to Texas.

Police believe Hafza Hailey is with her biological mother, Taheerah Ahmad, 39.

An Amber Alert was issued for the 7-year-old girl. The suspect is believed to be driving a 2011 Ford Escape with Oklahoma tag 778-MNX, or a 2005 Black Lexus RX300 with used dealer paper tag UD-4976.

The search ended Tuesday afternoon, when Ahmad and her 7-year-old daughter were found in a parking lot in Tulsa.

Ahmad is described as a black female with curly black hair with gold streaks in it. Hafza was last seen wearing an ankle-length peach dress and is described to be wearing a puffy ponytail and gold bracelets on her wrist.

MacKenzie said Monday evening that there was no known history of child abuse or domestic violence.
