TALLADEGA, Ala. (WBRC) - Authorities say a 4-month-old abducted in Talladega County Friday morning has been found safe, but the man who took her is still at large.

Authorities say 4-month-old Cambrylln Mayfield was in the back seat of a 2014 Chevrolet Sonic Friday morning when a man demanded the car at gunpoint around 3 a.m. near Dorothy Lane in Talladega.

ALEA issued an Amber Alert at 8:30 a.m.

Talladega Police Captain John McCoy says that five hour delay was so his investigators could gather all of the information needed for the Amber Alert.

The car was found under a bridge on Highway 77, on Choccolocco Creek by a Lincoln police officer with Cambrylln in her car seat safe and apparently in good condition.

The baby and the car were found in Lincoln.

“The child was still in the car seat, in the back seat of the vehicle and was located in good condition. The child was checked out by the paramedics before the child left the scene and was returned,” McCoy told reporters.

The man who took the child and the car still has not been located. McCoy did not indicate whether he knew the family.

Police are still interviewing multiple witnesses.
