PALATKA, Fla. — A 3-year-old girl reportedly kidnapped by her mother last May was found safe on Monday after police received a tip following the airing of CNN’s “The Hunt” on Sunday night.

Lilly Abigail Baumann was found safe at a home in the Palatka area, according to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.

The girl’s mother, Megan Everett, is charged with kidnapping and interference with custody.

The girl, who was reported kidnapped in May 2014, was featured on John Walsh’s show “The Hunt” on Sunday.  A landlady who lives in Putnam County recognized the woman as tenants of her rental property on Motes Lane. The woman contacted CNN who immediately alerted local authorities.

The girl will be placed with her father on Monday afternoon.
