STERLING, Va. (CBSDC/AP) — The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office says a child abducted from California in 2006 has been found safe in Sterling.
Stephanie Cano, who turns 13 later this month, was found Monday with her mother, Maria Cano, in a home in Sterling after Los Angeles police received a tip though the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children website.
When Stephanie was 6, her father reported her missing from their Los Angeles home.
Deputies say 39-year-old Maria Cano is wanted in California for child concealment and multiple counts of grand theft. She is awaiting extradition to California.
Stephanie will be returned to her father.
