GASTONIA, N.C. (AP) – Police say that a North Carolina toddler whose abduction triggered an Amber Alert has been found and reunited with her mother.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department issued a news release Sunday saying they assisted the U.S. Marshals Service as marshals apprehended a suspect in the Gastonia abduction. The news release said the Gastonia girl was being reunited with her mother. They said the suspect was arrested after a car crash in Charlotte.
The department referred further questions to the Gastonia Police Department.
Earlier in the day, a news release issued by state authorities said 3-year-old Destiny Boykins had been abducted from a Gastonia apartment in her pajamas.
Authorities had been looking for a 57-year-old black male. It wasn’t immediately clear what charges could be filed in the case.
