PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - A 5-year-old reportedly taken from her school in Philadelphia on Monday was found safe overnight, police said.
Nailla Robinson was taken from the Bryant School in the 6000 block of Cedar Avenue around 8 a.m. Monday, police said.
She was abducted by a woman wearing black Muslim-style clothing, who authorities said posed as her mother. The woman, police said, introduced herself as "Tiffany," but her signature in the school visitor log was illegible.
The girl was found safe in Upper Darby Twp., Delaware Co., early Tuesday morning, police said.
A man walking down the street early Tuesday heard cries for help and found Robinson hiding under a jungle gym in a nearby park, said Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood, adding that the girl was taken to a hospital to be checked out, but that she's OK.
Police discovered the girl was missing at about 3 p.m. Monday when a caretaker from the child's after-school program came to pick her up.
