Abducted 1-Year-Old Found Safe, Father Charged [Update]

Angelo W. Davis Jr. allegedly abducted his daughter from a Gloucester Township day care on Wednesday afternoon.

Update, 10:55 p.m.

One-year-old Anyla Moore, who was reportedly abducted from her Gloucester Township day care Wednesday, was found unharmed the same night. Her father was charged and jailed in the alleged kidnapping.

New Jersey State Police's Missing Persons Unit found Anyla and her father, Angelo W. Davis Jr., 22, at a home on Lexington Avenue in Pennsauken. Police allege that Davis, the noncustodial parent, took Anyla from her day care on Wednesday afternoon.

David was charged with interference of custody and held at Camden County Jail on $75,000 bail.

Anyla was reunited with her mother.

Alerts went out statewide after Anyla was reported missing. The toddler's mother arrived to pick her up from from Kinder Care on Broadacres Drive in Gloucester Township, only to be told Davis had already taken the girl, who lives in Pine Hill.

The girl's mother then called police, who suspected Davis would head to Pennsauken or Camden on public transportation.

Anyla's mother feared for the toddler's safety because Davis has a violent past, has a history of mental health issues, and may be abusing dangerous drugs, according to police. 

A joint investigation between Gloucester Township Police, New Jersey State Police and the Camden County Prosecutor's Office uncovered Davis and Anyla.

I know the parties involved and this story is NOTHING like it's being reported in the news. Please don't believe all of this hype, Angelo is a decent young man from a very loving family. He would never do anything to harm his child or anyone else for that matter. This is just a womans scorn being played out in a public forum. This too shall pass.
