ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A woman accused of stealing a vehicle used to abduct a 4-year-old girl who was left abandoned at a New Mexico campground has made her first court appearance.

KOB-TV in Albuquerque reports (https://bit.ly/2f6a4DM) that 26-year-old Brittany Castro made an initial appearance Saturday in connection with a carjacking and kidnapping.

According to the criminal complaint, Castro faces charges including child abandonment, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle and false imprisonment.

The girl’s father told Albuquerque police that he and his wife were giving Castro a ride early Friday.

She allegedly took the couple’s car while they stopped at an acquaintance’s workplace. The child was inside.

Castro later left the girl at a KOA campground in Bernalillo.

Castro and the car were found at a home nearby and she was arrested.
