HURON, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 3-year-old Central California girl abducted Sunday night has been found alive and alone in a field and police are still searching for her kidnapper.
Fresno County Sheriff's Lt. Rick Ko said Monday the girl was being medically evaluated. No more information about her condition was released.
The Fresno Bee reports the girl was found by a detective Monday in a field less than a half-mile from her apartment in Huron, where she was taken Sunday evening.
The girl's mother told police she left her daughter inside her car as she went back inside her home to get her wallet. When she returned a few minutes later, her daughter was gone.
Witnesses say they saw a suspect leave the area on a bicycle with the child. A BMX-style bicycle was found abandoned about a block away.
