The two-year-old Dunedin girl who sparked a widespread
search after being abducted from the Otago Farmers Market
yesterday has been found safe and well.
Bailey Johnson was found by police at an address in South
Dunedin, nearly 24 hours after she went missing at 12.30pm
The search centred on her maternal grandmother Yvonne Skeet,
who was alleged to have driven away from the market with the
girl without the permission of the child's legal guardian.
Police, who appealed last night for sightings of the pair,
thanked members of the public for the "excellent response and
valuable information provided".
A 47 year old woman has been charged with abduction and will
appear in the Dunedin District Court tomorrow.
