Albany Police have found the 4-year-old child who went missing in the West Highland area, as well as the person suspected of taking her.

They were searching for Unique Westmoreland.

Officials said she was picked up from Baby World at 726 West Highland, by Kimyatta Peeples at approximately 1:45 p.m on Thursday.

Police said Peeples had a relationship with the girl's mother, and Peeples has been charged with kidnapping.

APD said that she dropped the child off at an apartment in the 2300 block of Whispering Pines and ran away. 

It is unclear if Peeples knew the resident at the apartment.
