(CNN) -- Sabrina Allen, a Texas girl allegedly kidnapped by her noncustodial mother 12 years ago, was recovered safely Tuesday in Mexico, and her mother was arrested there, said Dan Powers, San Antonio FBI assistant special agent in charge.

The mother, Dara Marie Llorens, has been deported to Travis County, Texas, where she will face charges, and Sabrina will be reunited with her father, Powers said.

The girl, who went missing at age 4, is now 17, and her mother is now 44, the FBI said.
 
Llorens allegedly violated a court-ordered child custody agreement and disappeared with her daughter shortly after taking her on April 19, 2002, during a scheduled weekend visit, the FBI said in its wanted bulletin for Llorens.
 
She failed to return her daughter to her father, the primary guardian, during a scheduled pickup on April 21, 2002, the FBI said.
 
Later that month, a Texas warrant was issued for Llorens, accusing her of interference with child custody, and then a federal warrant was issued in May 2002, charging Llorens with unlawful flight.
 
The mother and daughter were found in Mexico City in June 2003 under the fake names of Blanca Aurora Fabian Uribe and Adriana Fabian Uribe, but they eluded authorities, according to the website the girl's father created to seek public help in finding Sabrina.
 
The girl's hair was cut, and her hair color was changed several times during her disappearance, the website said.
