RED OAK, TX (KTVT) -

Authorities in Ellis County plan to cancel an Amber Alert for a 16-year-old girl who was thought to have been abducted.

Police originally thought Inez Ramirez had been kidnapped by her boyfriend 23-year-old Edger Barron.  But after talking with witnesses, they now say Ramirez packed a suitcase and voluntarily left a relative's house between midnight and 2 a.m.  to meet Barron.  It's believed the two are headed to Mexico and that Ramirez is not in danger.  Authorities say Ramirez moved here from Mexico a few months ago and had not yet enrolled in school in North Texas.  Barron is also from Mexico.

Ramirez and Barron were both last seen in Red Oak. He was last driving a red 2006 four-door Chevrolet Silverado.
