Tulsa police say they've taken into custody a woman who bound and gagged her three daughters, stabbed the eldest repeatedly, and set their house on fire.

Police said Tuesday that a 7-year-old girl who was reported missing has been found safe.

Oklahoma authorities say a patrol officer located 39-year-old Taheerah Ahmad in her vehicle in downtown Tulsa, and she was taken into custody without incident.

Authorities had been searching for Ahmad since Monday night, when officers found her house on fire and her 11-year-old daughter suffering from multiple stab wounds.

Police say the 11-year-old girl is in "very severe condition" in a Tulsa hospital.
