Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says a man walking down the street early this morning heard cries for help and found Nailla Robinson hiding under a jungle gym in a nearby park. He says she’s been taken to the hospital to be checked out, but that she’s OK

Police say Robinson was taken Monday morning from the Bryant School in west Philadelphia. Police say the woman introduced herself as “Tiffany,” but her signature in the school visitor log was illegible.

“Where is she, where could she be?” begged the girl’s tearful mother Latifah Abdul-Rashid during the initial scare.

Police discovered that the girl was missing at about 3 p.m. Monday when a caretaker from the child’s after-school program came to pick her up.

The police investigation will continue says a police source to The Global Dispatch.
