PHILADELPHIA—A kindergartner who was kidnapped from her school Monday has been found safe.

Authorities say 5-year-old Nailla Robinson was taken from Cullen Bryant Elementary School around 9 a.m.

The school’s security camera captured a woman dressed in a long black robe and a hijab walking with the child out of the building.

The woman allegedly told school officials she needed to take her daughter to breakfast and signed Robinson out of school.

After she never came back, school leaders called Robinson’s family who said they did not check the little girl out of class.

An Amber Alert was issued about five hours after she was last seen.

Early Tuesday morning, a man on his way to work spotted Robinson in a park.

Capt. John Darby, Philadelphia Police Department, said, “There were no overt physical signs of injury to this child. She was also and still is being screened for possible assault given the condition under which she was recovered.”

Robinson is at a children’s hospital for further evaluation and police are still searching for the woman who took her from school.

Authorities say Robinson probably did not know the woman but they do not think it was a random act.
