Authorities say a New Mexico woman faces kidnapping and other charges after she entered the home of her 3-year-old daughter’s father and took the girl in the middle of the night.

New Mexico State Police said Tuesday evening that 34-year-old Charity Chino forced her way into the Santa Rosa home and took her daughter. She was not allowed to have contact with the girl or her father.

Chino was taken into custody in Tohajiilee. She earlier told the Albuquerque Journal that she picked up the girl out of concern. She said the father may not have remembered that she picked up the child because he wasn’t fully awake.

State police issued an Amber Alert for the girl before 9 a.m. Tuesday. They say the girl was found safe around 11 a.m.
