Beatriz Rios’ lawyer, Angahard Vaughan, said her client was steered into a part of Central Park she was unfamiliar with and spent several hours trying to “find her way out.”
Rios, 46, faces a variety of charges after she allegedly disappeared with a 17-month-old Annabelle Ceria Wednesday morning.
Beatriz Rios, 46, had bail set at $10,000 bond or $5,000 cash at Manhattan Criminal Court. An order of protection was also issued for the child along with her father and mother.
Police said that 46-year-old babysitter Beatrice Rios, of Queens, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child among other charges.
