Nailla Robinson was kidnapped from school on Monday morning just minutes after her mother dropped her off. She was found hiding under a jungle gym in a park in Upper Darby, PA by a man who heard her cries on Tuesday morning, police said.
She only had a t-shirt on and was cold and wet, but otherwise unhurt local FOX News reported. The tot told authorities she ran away from the people who kidnapped her. She is now being cared for at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, authorities said.
The kindergartner was abducted from her classroom at the Bryant School in southwest on Monday morning by a woman in a burqa and veil covering her face, security video showed.
The kidnapper claimed to be the child’s mother — who also wears a burqa and veil — and signed the girl out in a school log with a name that police said was illegible.
She was taken at around 8:50 a.m., about ten minutes after her real mother dropped her off. No one realized she was gone until nearly 3 p.m., when a day care worker went to pick her up.
Police said the investigation was continuing.
