Kidnapped six-year-old California girl discovered in Orange Co., Ind.

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A six-year-old California girl who was abducted by her mother two weeks ago was found in Orange County, Ind. on Wednesday.

California authorities had alerted the Orange County Sheriff's Dept. that the girl's mother, Abrielle Roberson, was believed to be driving to Orange County with her.  A California court had awarded custody of the child to her father, but Roberson did not turn the child over as ordered.

The Sheriff's Dept. was told Roberson and her daughter might be driving to Orange County.  Orange County Sheriff's Deputies and Indiana State Troopers found them at a home on Oak Grove Road in a rural part of the county.

Roberson faces charges of Detention of Minor Child with Intent to Conceal from Legal Custody.  She's expected to be extradited to California, where her bail has been set at $100,000.

The child is with Indiana's Child Protective Services until her father can arrive to pick her up.
