NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A two-year-old girl has been found safe after being reported missing Thursday afternoon in Washington Heights.
Police say the child was found a few hours later with her mother in Yonkers.
Earlier in the day, the little girl was with her father but authorities say he left the girl with a friend.
The father was arrested for allegedly stealing packages from a residential building just a short time later.
That man now faces burglary charges.
It turns out the alleged porch pirate’s friend had dropped the child off with her mother after he left.
