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.
